Kutani Tea Set

Tea has always been an important part of Japanese culture. A ceremonial tea set would often be used by families at important occasions and the more wealthy the family, the more lavish the tea set would be. A Kutani tea set from the Nippon is a perfect example of the fine qualities of porcelain production from over 300 years ago.

These Kutani tea set pieces are decorated with bright, bold colorings and often have images of birds on and are intricately hand painted, glazed and decorated. Although the old art of making this style of Japanese porcelain died out long ago, modern reproductions pay homage to the original artists and style.

If you are an avid collector of Japanese art or other collectibles, tea sets can be an excellent addition. Most people have multiple Japanese tea sets that they use both for casual use and for formal use. Depending on the kind of gathering that you are going to have at your home, and the kind of tea you are going to serve to your guests, you may choose one kind of tea set over another. Some people choose to keep their tea sets in a display cabinet or hutch, where they are protected but still able to be displayed. Whatever your style is for tea sets, there are a lot of beautiful and hand crafted Japanese tea sets that are available to start collecting.
