Vintage Lipper and Mann Clown Tea Set consisting of covered teapot, creamer, and covered sugar bowl. This whimsical set features clown faces with glaze colors of blue, pink, burgundy, black, brown, and yellow. Red noses are cold painted which accounts for missing paint found often on these sets when available. Absolutely adorable anthropomorphic type vintage collectibles, not easily found with all pieces. Lipper and Mann manufactured this set in Japan.

The teapot almost no color left on the nose. All other colors are under glaze. White base shows clear crazing.
