    I'm embarrassingly new to this whole thing and have zero idea how to tell if something is vintage or just modern when it comes to china. I was gifted this decorative tea set about 7-8 years ago, in a pretty old box that was originally for the set, and they were bought from a flea market, but I haven't been able to find anything similar to them or the marking online, been trying for the past 2 months. I feel like it's probably more modern, but I just want to be safe and certain. So I figured I'd ask here :)

    If anyone has an idea of the age, what the marking says or can find anything online I'd be very thankful!

    Teapot is 7" W by 7" H
    Mini Plates are 4 1/2" W by 1" H
    Mini Cups are 3" W by 3 1/2" H

    Hello and welcome to the board.

    Coffee set not tea set
    After the 1970s. Maybe up through the 1990s. Doubt it is current.

    It has Imari colors so I would start with Arita marks. Not saying that is what it is. Just where I would start.

    I actually found something very similar when looking up imari arita coffee set, however this one had peacocks on it and seems to be the only thing I can find so far. No idea what the mark looks like underneath the similar peacock set, but sellers say it says Marugo Kinsei. But I'm getting closer, thanks! :)

    (example of what I found that was close)

    So I managed to somehow find my set on google images about 3 times, but the ebay listing is nonexistent now and the zeppy.io's/PicClick(?) listings can't be found either. This thing really is a pain to find lol. All I can seem to find is a Peacock version and one other kind that's hard to make out, but clearly not the one I have.

    However the Peacock set seems to be around the 1970-1980's time, or so some of these listings say. So that helps :)

    remember: spout low coffee, spout medium tea, spout at the top chocolate. Coffee grounds sink to the bottom, tea leaves float to the top chocolate needs stirring at the top.:rolleyes:
