This cute cup is an old milk mug with images representing the child’s Grimm fairy tale of Hansel & Gretel. The wicked witch is peering from behind the shuttered window. Gretel is walking away from the house and Hansel is the handle and is overlooking the scene. It is trimmed across the top edge with pink hearts and blue swirls and other images on the cup look like gingerbread men and bunnies. It is very colorful and all of the decoration is under glaze. It is not marked but I believe it was made in Japan in the 1940’s or 1950’s. This would even make a fun coffee mug for someone young at heart.
It measures about 3 ¼” high and the cup measures about 3 5/16” in diameter at the top excluding the handle. It is in good condition with minimal wear. There is a crack on the inside but it doesn’t show on the outside and there is some crazing on the opposite side of the crack but that doesn’t show on the outside either. I have show the inside and outside of the areas in the photos.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
