This lovely cup and saucer is marked Japan. The cup and saucer are hand painted. There are panels of a lovely bright aqua that alternate with floral panels. There is nice gilding between the panels and around the rim of the cup, saucer and handle. There is no loss of paint or gold. There are no chips or cracks. The saucer is 4 3/4 inches in diameter. The cup has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches (not including the handle) and has a height of about 2 1/4 inches. This is a lovely item for display because it is so bright and colorful.
