A Quick Visit To Mt. Fuji


You must admit that items like this are just not being produced anymore.
This was hand-painted by a Japanese artisan and is part of a tea set  I got last week.

It is called 'Japanese Eggshell Porcelain with Mt. Fuji motif'.


Do you think we will ever return to the days when craftsmanship
and quality was a priority for household items?

    1. I know, Jean, but I am sure the set makes for a perfect 'cup of tea'....so delicate.
      Hope things are good with you and yours. Have a wonderful day/evening.

  5. That is amazing! I'm not sure if we'll ever return to that, Jim. We seem to have become a 'disposable' society.

    1. Yes we are a throw away society for sure, Martha.
      Maybe we will change sometime in the distant future.

  6. A lovely plate, Jim! Craftsmanship and quality costs. Manufacturers are interested in lowest cost/unit and early obsolescence. My inner cynic is rearing! That said, I think people make choices; they buy the necessities and then begin adding beautiful things as they can.
