Continuing on with last week’s post in regards to Japan porcelain, I think I have an early cup and saucer made in Japan. I do not know for sure as it is unmarked. What do you think?
My humble opinion is based on my limited knowledge of porcelain. On the exterior of cup is a lusterware finish which is common to Japanese makers as is the gold trim and its finish.
Both the outer edges of cup and saucer are eggshell thin. So delicate. I wish you all could touch it.
I love the scalloped edges. The color of the porcelain is not as white as English china. Regardless of the mysterious maker of this cup, I appreciate the fine detail and the cameo roses which are surrounded by handpainted gold dots.
I am sharing this week with Martha’s Favorites, Bernideen’s Tea Time blog, Antiques and TeaCups, and Rose Chintz Cottage. Won’t you join us.
