These beautiful hand painted Arita Fukagawa Seiji Gold Bamboo cups & saucers (3) belonged to a dear friend. They are from the 1950's. They feature metallic 22kt gold bamboo trees throwing gray shadows on pure white. The edges are also trimmed in gold. The artwork is delicate and beautiful. It was difficult to photograph and capture the true beauty of these pieces. The cups are 4 inches across at the mouth and 2 inches high. The saucers are 6 inches across.
We have several pieces of this pattern for sale. If you wish to purchase more than one listing we will work with you on combining shipping.

Chuji Fukugawa established “Fukugawa Seiji” in 1894. His aim was to attain the highest level of porcelain craftsmanship ever achieved. The company logo is Mt. Fuji with a running stream.

Fukagawa is a family, a brand name, a place and nowadays a porcelain factory in the Arita region. Its history goes back to the seventeenth century. Fukagawa is thus a part but not all of Arita.

Its history starts with Ezaiemon Fukagawa who in 1856 became head of his family's porcelain business and in 1875 founded Koransha (The Company of the Scented Orchid) in Arita, Japan, to produce tableware for export.

In 1894 the modern Fukagawa company was founded by Chuji Fukagawa, with the Fukagawa trade mark of Mount Fuji and a stream, as its trade mark.

The Fukagawa company has served as purveyor for the Japanese Imperial Household since 1910 and only produces what we mean by white true high temperature porcelain.

We are in the process of sorting through many years of treasures, some which we got from our parents and grandparents. We are at an age where we would like to see our family treasures go to new homes where they can be used and appreciate. We are trying to do this in a timely manner and appreciate your patience.
