Kikusui- Made in Japan



Today will be my first Blue Monday. I am linking up with Sally at her blog SmilingSally. If you would like to see other lovely blues then head on over. Thank you Sally!


Has any one heard of Kikusui? I am very interested
in knowing a little
more about the company. I went on to
Replacements.Com and they didn't
have anything like this pattern or any history on the company.


I was in a Junk store...I mean a JUNK store...not an antique store...and I was just about ready to leave, when I spied this set on a back shelf. They were marked $9.00 for the set. Then on the creamer there was a sticker that said $2.oo for the set and on the sugar bowl a sticker that said $1.00. Soooo, not willing to pay $3.00 for the set, I asked the toupee-d man if that meant it was $1.00 for the set? He looked at me and said "Ya! Shooor! Cash?"
He was kinda funny in an odd way....
He kept trying to get me to buy some nasty old fishing hooks...like I said...odd.


So that is my major bargain....I think?
The creamer has a couple of hairline cracks,
but doesn't leak. I think that they are probably
from the '50's.
I just love them.
