Beginning in the late 18th century and continuing into the 20th, many of the top European and American producers of chinaware and pottery, such as Wedgwood, Limoges, and Bennington, made small versions of tea services which allowed little girls to give elaborate tea parties for their dolls and friends.
This doll size tea service, which is decorated with the popular blue and white willow pattern, was made in Japan around 1930.
