This fabulous and very rare tea cup and saucer is a Paragon Bone China tea cup and saucer depicting symbols in the bowl for use as a fortune telling tool. This cup was made in the 1930s, as it was all the rage in the Art Deco Era to have fortune telling parties. This cup's color is a pale peach with a raised cloud like relief along the outside of the cup and the outside rim of the saucer. The symbols inside the bowl are a chocolate brown and along the inside rim of the cup reads, "What curious things i see while telling fortunes in your tea."

This set is in PERFECT condition in that there are not cracks, hairlines, repairs or crazing. The only things I mention here, which I do not consider flaws, are one spot on the edge of the saucer (see picture 4) where there was gold gilt over spray onto the relief design, and the other is a pin prick of missed paint close to the center of the saucer. Other than these two issues, which I only mention for accuracy are not considered flaws in my eyes.

This is an extraordinary rare piece of bone china as this color is hard to find. The cup does have a register number and the saucer does as well as a gold leaf hand painted number code. This is a standard size tea cup and saucer.
