At only 2"H x 2 1/4"W across the mouth, this handpainted Japanese teacup may be small, yet it is quite artistic and ornate. The garden scene on a creamy white background depicts a bamboo tree, colorful flowers, and two birds all outlined in gold. The top rim, bottom foot, and handle are also trimmed in gold. The design is carried around to the sides as shown in photo #3. There are no chips, or cracks, and only slight crazing can be seen through a magnifier. See photo 4 of the makers stamp on the bottom with gold lettering on a dark box. I don't read Japanese. This china cup is very old and gorgeous!
