    I've never heard of Shofu, but i thought these were pretty. The cap is missing on the covered urn or sugarbowl, but the teapot one fits it too. is Shofu anything special?

      Hi,
      Look here
      http://www.japanesepotterymarks.info/index.php?trading_company=75
      There are many Shofu items on eBay but almost all of them are clearly marked ``made in occupied Japan`` and although claiming ``hand painted`` they are actually transfer printed. Your teapot is of much better quality and I think it was made during Meiji era,i.e.first half 20th century.
      Regards
