Customer Question

I have been offered 18 pieces of Japanese luster ware. There is a teapot, creamer, sugar bowl, 4 cups and saucers, and 5 plates. All is marked with TT except the cups. The pieces are painted mainly blue with predominant bluebird on the front. Not sure if I should buy. Comments from you would be appreciated. TIA. I have a photograph but can't figure out how to show you.

This is a Takito ware lustre tea set made in Japan in the 1930's. The value is not high on these sets. You can buy a whole set like this on Ebay for under 30.00, so I guess you would weight that price against what this person is asking.
