Exquisite Green Lusterware Footed Cup and Saucer, Red Stamped "Made in Japan"

An incredible example of fine porcelain with pearlized luster (lustre) finish. This dainty footed tea cup features a rare green border with intricate metallic gold cherry blossom boughs and accent edging. Measuring 3" tall and 3 5/8" in diameter, the pedestal-foot cup rests atop a 5 1/2" saucer with a matching pattern. The iridescent luster finish adds a subtle sheen.

Lusterware (lustreware) is created by glazing porcelain (or pottery) with a glaze mixed with metallic oxides. This overglaze finish produces the effect of rainbow iridescence when fired a second time at a lower temperature without oxygen. When glazed over delicate hand painting, a perfectly preserved pattern is created.

The ornate handle and fanned scalloped foot elegantly finish the exquisite set. Both pieces are well marked with a red stamped "Made in Japan".
