Customer Question
grandmother (I am almost 70...
I have a tea set that (I believe) belonged to my great grandmother (I am almost 70 myself). It is definitely Asian, has tiny little cups with handles and paintings of women in kimonas and water/trees two thatched roof structures. The edges are brown/gold. There is a name on the bottom of the teapot but...I can't read the language. :) I think it is also faded. Can you appraise this? I would like to send a picture of the signature but only see one opportunity to add a photo
