I would like to know more about this Chinese tea set. My great grandfather brought it home from China as a sailor. It looks hand painted and the teacups are not perfectly circular, so it cant be factory made. Any information you have on it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Marcus.

It looks more like a Japanese cup and saucer set judging from the wardrobe of the hand painted characters.

It looks like a Japanese Satsuma Kutani Geisha tea cup and saucer, on Ebay they are valued at $9.95 to $26.
