Demi Tasse Set #5

Demi Tasse set #5 is a Japanese set.  The cup is rimmed at the bottom with a blue-green color band and the upper 2/3 of the cup has a repeated scene that is bordered with gilt decorated edges. 

The plate is surrounded with the same scene with gold motif, and the middle of the saucer matches the lower band on the cup.  It's a really sweet set, made in Japan.

I've really been enthralled with the smallness of the demi tasse sets.  I've been looking for other sets and have successfully found a few more! I'm so glad someone thought to make these sweet cups and saucers in a small size!  I can collect many more of this size than regular size!!  Oh the possibilities!
I'm joining all the Tea Parties out there in Blogland.  Be sure and drop by to view all those gorgeous blogs and join in yourself!
Have a wonderful week!
Blessings, Doni

Doni, Your demitasse cup is beautiful, and so is the lace doily!

So glad you dropped in for tea. Your demitasse collection is so sweet.
I read the post about your mom's passing. "Beautiful words of peace" comes to my mind. You do sound at peace and so is your mom. May God continue to be your strength.
Have a blessed week.

Luv your demitasse! It looks very french, hard to believe it's Japanese made :)

I adore demi-tasse sized cups and saucers! They remind me of playing with dolls and toy tea sets -- I would still like to play with dolls and toy tea sets!

Your set is just gorgeous!

I really like this Japanese demitasse set...very lovely. I was quite surprised by the bright blue/green and the pinks...because all of the Japanese tea things I've seen up to this point, with the exception of my own, have been more blacks, greys, etc...still very beautiful :) :) :) this is a wonderful set. I'm glad you are able to find more. I've been keeping my eyes out for tea things at various yard sales...but haven't found anything in awhile. Have a great week. Thanks for letting me stop by for tea. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
