Thank you so very much for your response, there is nothing in the world like communication :). What I am trying to do is to obtain the last teacup. I guess my question to you is ......do you have any idea where I could locate it? For example I had a dinner party and one of my guest broke a flute I when on line, located the name of the maker find one of the distributor and was finally able to replace the champagne flute. It took me several days of intense looking but I did it. I have tried the same with the teacup. I located the teacup by the name Naoka Nobata when on line and after going thru many different finally saw one of the teacups that I already have...now all I am trying to find out is there a distrubutor that has the teacups and can I obtain the one I need to complete my collection.
