Vintage Te-Oh China Pitcher Mugs Nippon Japan Hand Painted Victorian

Beautiful late 19th century - early 20th century pitcher with ice lip and two mugs. Hand painted in Japan with lovely rose motif. Greens, pink, browns and gold.

The pitcher is in good condition with light-moderate use wear. Definitely paint loss but still looks great. Body has light dings made while being produced. Ring stain on half of bottom... please see 4th photo. The lip has small chip about 5/8" X 1/4". No other structural flaws. No cracks.

The two mugs are in good condition with same outside condition as pitcher. Inside one mug is one very old crack that does not leak. Inside the other mug are two very old cracks that do not leak. Please see second photo for flaws

Incredible example of Victorian era Japanese China and a beautiful addition to your table

The word used in the back stamp of famous Asian china, "Nippon," simply means "Japan." Nippon china was produced for export to the United States beginning in 1865, when the country ended its long period of commercial isolation, and ending in 1921, when the United States enforced the McKinley Tariff act which prohibited the import of items which were not "plainly marked, stamped, branded or labeled in legible English words. As Nippon was considered the Japanese word for the country of origin, "Japan" being the English equivalent, the period of the Nippon china mark came to an end.
Much of the antique Nippon china available has been hand-painted with ornate decorations that, ironically, the Japanese of the era considered excessive and distasteful. During the Meiji period (1868-1912) much of the Nippon porcelain pieces were decorated with gold. Much of this decoration was not very durable and wore away over the years, so it is common today to find Nippon china pieces with the gold rubbed off.
