Double handled sugar bowl with lead. Produced in the mid 1920's by several Japanese sub-contractors, the 7 Lucky Cranes pattern is extremely desirable in all colors. I have seen the blue sky version several times before and the pink even more rarely, but this is only the second time I've seen the hexagonal pattern and never with the actual teapot.
The set is marked on the bottom with the Cherry Blossom TN Hand Painted Japan makers mark. The TN stands for Tame & Nakamura of the Moriyama style. The pieces are extremely delicate, but have somehow survived with no chips or cracks. The gilding shows a great deal of wear on the handles, so I know they were used. There are some black marks in the clear glaze which I believe to be firing burns.There is also one small chip to the inside rim of the teapot. Please look at all of the images closely as I've tried to picture any issues I've found. I have no issues if you'd like more pictures. These are truly wonderful antiques.
