Vintage Tao Fong Shan Porcelain Lazy Susan

I have to quickly post this item!  I emailed these pictures to my friend last night--had to share!  I found this porcelain lazy Susan tray set yesterday at the thrift and it was made sweeter with a 25% discount.  I have a weakness for Asian porcelain and there was no way I was going to pass up this hand painted set from Tao Fong Shan!  I've wanted one of these for years, at least 10 I think (longer probably), but I WAS NOT going to buy one on line with shipping costs etc.  I'm glad I waited, this is gorgeous!

Peonies and Lotus, the 7 pieces fit into the tray.

 
This is part of the detail of the lid. The lacquered box is exquisite as well!

I told my friend that I am already planning tea with her and I'm going to fill it with special goodies for the two of us!  We don't get to spend enough time together and when we do, we eat and talk for a good couple hours.  Cant wait!

  1. Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. I wish we would have brought more dishes/tea pots home with us from China when we traveled for Josie's adoption. The craftsmanship is truly amazing.

    1. Fortunately these things do show up second hand! My love for it started when my brother brought me a tea set from Hong Kong when I was a teenager. I'm sure it will come to you too Kim!
