It's a tea set that says hand painted in Japan and the mark is either KE or KB in a triangle.
It is mainly brown with raised gold paint. Figures appear to be sitting on floor talking. They seem to have gold halos over their heads and have very rich looking robes on. The robes have some purple, orange, blue and some raised dots of white and other colors. I only know it was brought back from the west coast when my grandparents took a cross country drive in the 1930's. It's very thin and delecate.
