    I need help in identifying this demitasse set which has 6 small cups and 6 matching plates, a tea / coffee pot that has a lid, a sugar bowl that also has a lid, and a creamer it has a raised surface in blue lines throughout and looks to be hand painted and possibly porcelain. There is also two different scenes on each side of the pieces.
    I was told this set was given to a soldier in the 1940's where he got it from is unknown. Not sure of the maker or if its from Japan or China and the date it was made. Any info on this set would be greatly appreciated along with any ideas on the value as well. Thank you

      I found out my set is from Japan dating anywhere from the 1920s - 1940s
