Perfect for a February birthday, this Quatrefoil Demitasse Cup and Saucer from Japan has alternating purple violets, February's flower of the month, and green panels with a high heart-shaped handle. Each white panel of this sweet four-sided cup and saucer set is decorated with clusters of purple violets on yellow-green leaves. An embossed scroll design at the top of each panel is delicately trimmed with gold. These are separated by a slightly recessed panel of grass green, also outlined in gold. The four-toed embossed foot of the cup is similarly gold decorated, and the heart-shaped high handle is heavily gilded.

The cup measures just 2-1/2 inches tall, 3 inches at the top of the handle, and 2-5/8 inches by 2-3/8 inches across. The saucer is 5 inches across the diagonal, 4-1/4 inches side to side.

It is marked simply in red "Made in Japan," and was made circa the 1950s.

There is minor wear and patina on the gold, and the inside bottom of the cup will need cleaning. The foot of the saucer and the foot of the cup each have several well-worn tiny nicks that do not impact stability, and of course, don't show from the top. There are otherwise no chips or cracks.
