Vintage Dragonware Tea Set - 15 pieces - Unsigned - Ivory Lusterware - Grey Smoke Dragon- Moriage - Hot Chocolate/Coffee - 1930's - 1940's



This amazing unsigned china tea/coffee set features a classic smokey dragon moriage pattern and handsome gold-glazed handles and accents!

Exceedingly rare, treasured and in excellent condition: 15 Piece Set Moriage Dragonware Covered Tea/Coffee Pot, Sugar & Creamer Service, 6 Cups & 6 Saucers.

This Pre World War II set most likely dates to the late 1930s and is simply amazing. The lusterware finished porcelain pieces feature hand painted dragons and clouds done in the Moriage style, meaning they are dimensional and actually raised above the plate. You can see and feel each edge and texture. Slight variations in the glaze and decorative work are to be expected in pieces such as these, produced one at a time by human hands.

The cups, saucers and covered tea/coffee pot all feature a winged dragon with cream over grey dimensional scales, wrapping halfway around a smoky white lusterware background. Each dragon has blue eyes with a black glass dot in the middle. Its tongue is raised, in squiggly streams of paint in a shiny, dusty rose pink. The dragon appears to be hissing or snarling!

The entire set feathers a lusterware over Ivory glaze giving the set a lusterful sheen that seems to move with the light!

Swirling around the dragons on the pot, cups are wispy blue graffiti like shapes, also dimensional.. Along the rim of the plate is a thin gilt border, with wispy gilt accents!

Each of the cups have a lithophane bottom that feature the image of a Geisha - Truly a stunning set!

A highly collectible and true heirloom in search of an appreciative new home!

Whether you're a collector of fine china or just want to impress the hell out of your in-laws, this set offers all you could ask for and much, much more!
