A fancy tea set

I saw this at the window of the local Italian shop, of all places. It is a fancy tea set from China or Japan or elsewhere in the Far East, I have no idea. And I was in a rush when I took the picture so I did not take time to ask the shopkeeper where it was from. Or its price. All the same, I love it. From Italy to the East, I felt like a modern Marco Polo just looking at it. I would love to have such a tea set, because I love the idea of tea drinking rituals (see my post here) using posh tea cups. And don't get me wrong: I am a borderline Philistine when it comes to tea. I would just like to be a bit sophisticated drinking it from time to time.
