Black Americana Thames Clown Measuring Cups

This 1950's set of three measuring cups of Black Americana hand-painted pottery. Made in Japan, these pieces are sometimes referred to as Thames Clown Pieces. The measurements for the cups are 1 cup, , 1/4 cup and 1/8 cup. They are black cups with painted yellow around the rims, gold hair, blue eyes, red bulbous noses, and wide white and red mouths. .. Since they are hand-painted, the colors are not perfect; but this is typical in this type of item.
The 1 cup has an original sticker "Thames Hand Painted - Made in Japan." des pat pend in gold and the letter N on bottom slight chip at pitcher spot looks like some one painted it hard to notice
1/4 cup marked japan des pat pending
1/8 cup has chip on rim and broken around rim and glued together(shown in last photo marked japan

These would be perfect for the collector of Black Americana kitchen items.
