Kelco espresso set

Kelco demitasse/espresso set
made in Japan, c.1968

This fine porcelain set comprises a coffee pot, milk jug, 4 side plates, 4 espresso cups & saucers, and 2 tea cups & saucers. The olive green glaze has a fine brown line around the edge of the pieces; classic late 60s colouring. This set can also be found in orange, and yellow, but for my money the olive green is the best.

You can use this set for a tea party – or – as an art piece, just don’t put it in the dishwasher. I have seen many lovely pieces ruined by people using pre-dishwasher pieces in a post-dishwasher world.

For sale [18 pieces]: $AUD125

  1. Hi
    I love he green but I have a question that someone may be able to answer, what type of coffee did they use in the pot, I dont think it would have been instant and if they used ground coffee beans how did they stop the grains from being poured into the cups?
    Thanks hope someone can give me an answer
