Looks like a typical 60s style. I don't think it's anything rare or valuable, but it's pretty.

Why don't you try it out and see if it whistles?

RE: Japanese Whistling Tea Set Circa 60's

I have a couple sake sets of the same design and composition. Those are nice, and very indicative of the type of pottery not typically touristy and flashy. My sets came from around Gunma prefecture, made in local pot shops. Yours are a set made for Western tastes (creamer and sugar and handles on the cups). Why do you call them 'whistling'? Is there something on/in them I'm not seeing?

These aren't "junk"'s a nice set. I don't know what they'd be getting stateside, since most Americans opted for the flashy stuff........though this is more authentic of styles you'd actually see in use in that time frame.
