- Made in Japan
- Vintage: 1950’s – 1960’s
- Details: Such a cute children’s tea set with tea pot (missing lid), sugar, creamer and two cups with their matching saucers . Every piece is stamped on the bottom “Japan” and they have an iridescent/lusterware finish. The pieces have an oriental design that includes a red and a blue flower with a tiny blue bird on each piece. The teapot has a really nice Japanese temple design. The designs are only on one side, unfortunately the teapot is missing its lid. The set is in its original box which is in average condition (please see pictures). There is a OMC label on one side, so most likely it was imported by OMC in the 50’s or 60’s. Great set for a collector!

The OMC sticker was used by Otagiri Mercantile Company (OMC) from 1954-1994 and had locations in both New York and San Francisco. Otagiri imported ceramics and other wares from many Japanese companies. They displayed the gold OMC label you see on many pieces but older pieces are missing those labels due to use and wear. However, by the mid 1970’s to the mid 1980’s Otagiri had some items specially produced just for them and those items have an incised mark (transfer mark) with “Otagiri”. They were bought by Enesco in 1994.
