Thank you.This is a tea set made by Marushin of Kyoto, Japan in the 1950's. This is lustre ware porcelain, the term for the iridescent glaze used on porcelain. The design is a transfer scene of a courting couple to mimic similar designs coming out of Germany during the same time period. This set consisting of coffee pot, tea pot, creamer, lidded sugar and six cups and saucers has a value of $100 to $125.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
