Great Miniature Porcelain Cup and Saucer ~ Hand Painted with Flowers and Gold ~ Hokutosha Made in Occupied Japan 1945+
Miniatures are very hard to find and this one is in great shape and looks beautiful. The artist has used a royal blue background and has added gold accents with cartouches. Inside the cartouches he has added a wonderful array of colorful flowers. He has also added the blue and gold designs on the upper portion of the inside rim of the cup. He has left the well of the saucer and the most of the inside of the cup a nice white giving in a little contrast for the busy outside. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: Made in Occupied Japan Hokutosha wreath with H inside
Measures: cup 1 5/8" W with handle, 1 1/8" without x 1 1/4" H Saucer 3 1/4" W
