These teacups each feature a golden bird perched on black branches of hand painted pink plum blossoms. They are very similar to the YY Japanese porcelain made in Japan for Hawaii's Yonemoto Store, then often shipped to Hong Kong for hand decoration of details. While these two don't have the YY Japan back mark on them, we suspect they might be a variant. The teacups are c 1960.

Each teacup is about 3"/7.62 cm across and just over 2" tall; they are slightly wider and shorter than this similar teacup: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/88553483

The teacups are sold as a set of two and are in good condition, with small areas of wear consistent with age in floral details and along the gilt rim. The teacup bottoms, though scrubbed and cleaned, show a few areas of slight discoloration.

We pack all items with care in recycled wrappings and ship USPS Flat Rate Insured. International orders ship USPS International First Class Insured. If final shipping charges are less than indicated, you'll receive a prompt refund of the difference.
