Noritake Tea Set with Maruki symbol stamp. Set is in very good condition with one only cup having a small chip on its base. Embellished gold design overlay on all pieces.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
What you are describing as the sugar bowl looks more like a fruit bowl to me...it's too large to be a waste bowl (for used tea leaves) and is also too large / doesn't have a rim and/or cover to be a sugar bowl.
