My Mom has a lovely toy tea set from Japan.

The bottom of the toy tea set is marked with the word JAPAN in red with a red crane design marking over it (see photo).

Hi, I have the same toy tea set and have been looking for information on it.

I’ve not been able to find much on the internet until I came across your post here.

Were you able to find any information on the set that you can share?

Thanks, Lori
