Whistling Bird Sake Bottle Geisha Lithophane Cup Red Gold Dragon Saki :
This is a Whistling Bird Sake Bottle with one Lithophane Geisha Cup. The bird on top of the bottle whistles when liquid is being poured from the bottle. The Lithophane in the base of the cup shows when it is being held up to a light. The bottle and cup are decorated with applied gold dragons. The solid bird (which is the whistle) on the top of the bottle is gold and there is a band of gold around the top and base of the spout and the base of the bottle.
The hexagon-shaped bottle stands 5-3/4" to the top of the spout and measures 2" across the base. It holds about 8 ounces of liquid. The cup stands 1-3/4" tall, measures 1-7/8" across the flared top and 1-5/16" across the base. It holds approximately 1 ounce when filled.
Both pieces are in excellent condition. No chips, cracks, scratches, crazing or discolorations. Applied gold is bright and intact. Bird whistles when liquid is being poured from bottle. Lithophane Geisha is well defined.
From 1991 to 1999, I sold antiques and collectibles in many large east coast Antique Shows and two Antique Mall Booths in Virginia and Maryland. After returning home to the Pacific Northwest in 1999, I operated a booth and showcase in the Star Antique Mall in Snohomish, Washington for four years before deciding to sell online full time. I have been selling on since 2002 and guarantee the descriptions and quality of my items. All are well packed & padded in new boxes or new bubble envelopes with Tracking and Insurance included. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for looking!
