Yeah... I'm not sure whose name is on the box. A friend of my grandma?
You hardly see tea cups with lids, right? Thought these were interesting. Not the cutest Japanese design, but it's still cool. Found these among grandma & grandpa's old things. We have tons more of stuff like this. Pretty awesome to go through. I would keep this set if the teapot were bigger. You'd have to refill that thing after serving one person! I've been to a Japanese restaurant where the teapot was too tiny...and it bugged me so much. So inefficient.
