I always love it when I receive "old stuff" as a birthday gift, so I was delighted when my friend Deberah dropped by this week with a gift of this beautiful blue lustreware tea set!
Do any of you know if lustreware is even the correct name for this? I know this style when I see it, and it's almost always in peach instead of blue, but I happen to think this blue set is even prettier!
I'm pretty sure she got it at a yard sale, as that is where she has purchased some of my favorite gifts over the years we've been friends.
The bottom is marked "Nippon," and I'm so pleased to have a three-piece set to add to my growing collection of blue teawares!
