Collectible Silk Road Takahashi Japanese Tea Set CLOSED - Gave it away





Collectible Silk Road Takahashi Japanese Tea Set

Posted from Krrb It via the Krrb it button.

Must sell by 7/30 -price will not be further reduced. Beautiful vintage collectible: Hand painted gold leaf trim Japanese tea set. Collectors item marked Silk Road Takahashi San Francisco 1983. Takahashi -known for importing quality Japanese porcelain and ceramics -closed in the late 1980’s.

This is a complete set in more or less mint condition: tea pot with lid and bamboo handle (If you actually plan to serve tea, don’t lift with the bamboo handle; I only displayed the tea pot), sugar bowl with lid, six tea cups with six saucers, and two plates for serving cookies/fruit, etc. Final sale / no return, cash only, you pick-up, and must be purchased as a set. The price is non-negotiable, but you can feel good about helping this broker than broke grad student who is selling off all her possessions to pay for an honors semester abroad and research / move to Africa.

Serious buyers only: please reply with contact info if you would like to schedule an appointment to view / purchase the set. I am located in Rosslyn a few blocks from the metro.
