Unusual art nouveau design on this fantastic 5 1/2 inch high Nippon moriage mug. The thistle design is unusual to find on moriage pieces indicating an art nouveau style and dating it to the very beginning of the 20th century. The lower portion of the piece shows pansies in beautiful hues of lilac and yellow with background colors of blue and green. As is typical of most moriage pieces of this early vintage, there are no manufacturer identification marks.
Condition for this piece is excellent with no chips or cracks and only very minor bead loss.
