Customer Question
Have a chocolate or...

Have a chocolate or tea set. It is marked Nippon hand painted. the plate has two blue birds with red throats that looks as if they are singing. I know nothing about the set.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

This was gift from a sister-in-law. It was a gift from an aunt. She said that it was probably from the early 40's. There is also an s&k on the back set in a diamond look insigna.

I will answer without photos since I am familiar with these sets.

This is a Nippon porcelain chocolate pot set that was imported to the US by

Saji and Kariya Company (S & K) of Los Angeles, California. The S &K

mark in a diamond was used between 1920 to 1940 on their imports.

This hand painted Japanese chocolate pot set has a current value of $175 to $200

if you have a set with four to six matching demitasse (small) cups and saucers.
