They have been, and are still, a work in progress. The last piece, so far, has been the little tin ware saucer, which i just got a few weeks ago on ebay.
I chose the pots because they are sturdy, the little black one i got in Malaysia, maybe 12 years ago, and the red one around 10 years ago in Bangkok - it's quite thick walled.
One of the blue & white cups i got maybe 20 years ago in Penang, the other, fitting, 5 years ago in KL. The larger saucer i got in Borneo in '98, the saucers, which i use as tea boats, i got 2 years ago in KL.
I love the basket ware boxes, they are made in southern Thailand, but unfortunately almost impossible to get anymore in this quality - fine, but not too fine - perfect protection. I fear that the last craftsmen may have died.
