Here is a bright yellow golden colored cup and saucer made in Japan. The inside of the cup is a shiny white . Holding the cup to the light you can see your hand behind this cup. The cup and saucer has some gold edging on the edge and a gold colored handle. The cup and the saucer is marked in a circle of red, Gold castle made in Japan. The mark is similar to one marked occupied Japan I found in the book Marian Klamkin, “Made in Occupied Japan” and from my reading, I believe it may be an earlier “Made in Japan” mark. Others have labeled it from 1950. The edges of this cup set have lost some of its edging as the piece has been used. The saucer is 5 inches across and the cup opening is 3 ¼ inches wide. There are two gray dots under the finish on the saucer about the size of a pencil point that appear to be a makers flaw. They do not mar the beauty of this set. I see no chips or cracks on these pieces. The color of this set is a must to have for any collection as they will light up the display.
