My Grandfather was in in World War II, in the Navy, & he sent this "Mickey Mouse Children's Porcelain Tea Set" stamped "Made In Occupied Japan W.D.P" home for my mother, when she was approximately 1-1/2 years old. As his ship was headed home when two Kamikaze's Suicide Bombers crashed into the ship, started a gasoline explosion & the ship sank within minutes. That was May 28th 1945 so this Tea Set had to be made Pre- 1945.
It's bad enough I know so little about my Grandfather but, I can't even seem to find out very much about this Tea Set. I believe this is fairly rare. These pieces have the Original Design of Clothing on Mickey & Minnie Mouse. The Set is made of Porcelain, but a few piece are chipped. If anyone has any knowledge, or can tell me where to find out more about this I would greatly appreciate it. I only seen one other like this, and it was only one piece, on the internet, it was auctioned on E-bay, but It wouldn't state how much it brought. Not that I am interested in selling, but, I would just like to know it's value. If anyone can tell me more about this, I would extremely appreciate it.
Thank-You ! !
