Early MeijiEggshell Cup & Saucer

Description: Not a lot known about the maker...well nothing really. Research says it was made in Japanbetween 1890 and 1910, which places it during the Meiji period. The house symbol on the base. Condition:Superb- free from chips, cracks and crazing. Thegilded pattern shows no signs of previous use and is free from scratches and Size:Eggshell Cup: 4.7cms tall&9.8cms across. Saucer: 14cms across. Decor:A cartouche containing a Pagoda, with trees, wispy stems and an over sized birdaccompanyingsits opposite another cartouche with twoGeisha sitting on a patio. An outer section of gilded criss-cross rectangles sits inside of the gilded trim. The pattern is replicated inside of the cup.

An excellentcup and saucerfrom the old masters. It's around 105+ years old and in superb condition. Out of interest the very fine porcelain cup weighs just 38 grams, compared to normal cups which weigh around 105 grams.

Naturally due to the fragility of the set special attention will be given to the packaging.

Happy offerding
