Material

Ceramic

This petite pair of cups and saucers are beautifully painted and glazed with intentional variation in the amount of paint on different parts of the dishes to gracefully vary the depth of color from one part of the cup or saucer to another part. The deep rose color is also very eye catching.

With the richness of their unique shade of pink and their simple lines these were displayed to striking effect in the china cabinet at the estate which passed them along.

The bottom of the saucers are incised under the glaze with the word JAPAN. It is my educated guess that were made in the mid 20th century judging by the fact that the heirs knew they had been displayed for a good long time, and the mid 1900s were the era of much beautiful imported ceramic ware from Japan.

The cups are 2 3/4" diameter x 1 1/2"h and in excellent condition with the exception of one very tiny flea bite to one cup edge. The saucers measure 5 1/2" in diameter, and are in beautiful unflawed condition. Because these pairs make particularly nice display pieces you might even want to think of using them as planters for a couple of different types of easy care succulent plants that would make this pair even more attractive as accent pieces in your home.
