Here are the Gene outfits- Baking Cookies with its box and documentation as well as Ivy Jordan Vee for tea

I am also beginning listing a very large collection of Moriage Lithophane Dragonware from preoccupied Japan. This is a huge collection with several lovely and rare or hard to find pieces.Here is a description of what lithophane means-

Lithophane- comes from the Greek litho meaning light in stone . Lithophanes are porcelain castings which when you first see them they appear to be nothing more than uneven surfaces forming a vague picture. Held up to the light,  you see the shades of lightness and dark.

the Sake tea set, which is known as a 'Whistling Bird' tea set as when the liquid is poured from the teapot it 'whistles' is an unusual and hard to find item. The cups have lithophane images of the 'common' Geisha on the bottom of the cup unseen until you hold the cup up to the light to see the geisha .

Shown above are the Dragonware serving bowl as well as a hard to find cigarette case with two ashtrays. Yes, these were used for that. All the pieces have the flying dragon in smoke grey and black color, with blue eyes. They were purchased I would estimate around 50+ years ago in preoccupied Japan

Also listed- an antique salt or pepper shaker Aunt Jemima, also pre occupied Japan on auctino as well. Lovely piece to decorate the kitchen with if you are into vintage.

Also listed are the teapot with sugar bowl and creamer, this large platter or tray which I believe the teaset sat on, as well as a single chipped teacup and saucer, 9.99 and a set of the wide mouthed teacups and saucers too.

I have more I am cataloging and listing of this collection. My husband and I have a large antique porcelain collection and are downsizing as it takes up so much display room in our home. The porcelain collection belonged to my husband from his parents, who traveled a great deal and lived for time in China, pre occupied Japan as well as Hawaii before settling down to live in Stafford Virgnia outside of Washington D.C. where they worked. Though my husband and I have enjoyed it, we have decided to sell the items so someone else can enjoy them. 

The collection has only been displayed, these items were never used to our knowledge or within my husband's memory, only for display. 

I also have plates, salad or luncheon plates, more teacups and saucers (smaller mouth) as well as dessert bowls or plates to list and catalogue as well, so stay tuned for more items to come. All above are currently listed. Thank you for browsing!
