Hi Sir or Madam
I can help you with this question.

Your tea set with geishas in the bottoms of the cups is called "lithophane". The missing saucer will hurt the value of the set somewhat, although Japanese tea sets made for use in Japan are usually service for five, instead of six.

Your Japanese Meikei Mt. Fuji tea set with lithophane geishas, if everything is in excellent condition, has a current retail (replacement) value of approximately $100.
