Item details

Vintage from before 2000

Material

Ceramic

A set of 6 vintage, individually hand-painted speckled stoneware sake cups or teacups with an Asian motif of bamboo and leaves.

Each cup measures 3"x 2.25".

I adore bamboo scenery, and when I first saw these cups, the design reminded me of Japanese stoneware. But the bottoms are all marked "HANDGEMALT", which can mean "something painted by hand" in German.

These are gorgeous sake cups / teacups, white with brown rims.

Besides the "HANDGEMALT" mark (see photo #3) there are no other markings.

Although the motif is the same, as each is hand-painted, every cup is slightly different, whether the leaf color or the size of the bamboo plant and nodes. So neat!

The cups are overall in good vintage condition, and items to note are pointed out on photo #4 as follows:

-- A tiny chip on one of the cups
-- A a couple of tiny glaze bumps from manufacturing process on the front of another cup
-- And while the brown specks are part of the stoneware (speckled, oatmeal tableware) there are two cups with larger specks than other cups. This is not a defect and is a natural appearance, but is pointed out for this listing.

This noted, the imperfections are tiny compared to the overall look and feel of these beautiful, set of 6, handmade and hand-painted sake cups / tea cups.

The listing and price is for all 6 cups.

Please review listing photo details and let me know if you have any questions.

In the event that your item is damaged through shipping, please photograph the items and let me know as soon as possible at MyMarketTales [!at] gmail.com.

Your items will ship within 3-5 business days after payment is received (and unless I am out of the area, I will typically ship in 1 to 2 days).

I mostly use US Post Office (USPS) Priority Mail, which will include delivery confirmation and insurance. For larger, bulkier items, I will use USPS Parcel Post, FedEx Ground (Home Delivery) or UPS -- United Parcel Service ground service.

Post Office Parcel Post, FedEx and UPS Ground can take a week or more for shipments to the East Coast. If time is an issue, please convo me and I will research the best and most economical way to ship your items.

Your orders are shipped from Central California. If you live in the West Coast, your items may ship for less, so do contact me and we can check if a reduced shipping cost is possible, before your purchase --- or if I can provide a better rate by combining items to ship to you. Sales tax is charged for addresses shipping only within California.

*** Please note the shipping prices are for the Continental USA only --- if you live in Alaska or Hawaii, or sending a gift to someone in Alaska or Hawaii, there will most likely be additional shipping costs.
