Q: My child-size green lusterware tea set is decorated with white and pink flower blossoms. The set includes four cups and 3 1/4-inch-diameter saucers, a 3 1/2-inch teapot, and a sugar and creamer. Some of the pieces are marked “Made in Japan.” There’s not a chip anywhere. Age and value?
A: Many lusterware children’s tea sets were made in Japan during the 1930s. Your set was probably made then, or perhaps as early as the late 1920s. Your set is a small one, without plates. It would sell for about $35 to $50.
