Well it's obvious in this case that the Chicken definitely came before the egg but with this cup on the table it can't be far behind! From Old Japan we bring you this simple and sweet egg cup, made of porcelain and sporting a hunting Hen on the front. The design is hand painted, as is the base and aside from some paint loss on the back bottom edge (not a chip!) the cup is in excellent condition. Measures just over 2.25" tall, 1.75" in diameter at the top and is marked "Japan" on the bottom. Please note the dark area seen inside the cup is under the glaze and likely occurred during firing.
