This is an exquisite teacup in a violet pattern . The flowers are in light and dark purple with leaves in shades of green with a few mustard highlights. The cup has a design on both sides and both the teacup and saucer are rimmed in gold with a stripe of gold on the handle. The edges of both are lightly molded and the saucer has small scallops. The backstamp on the saucer is JAPAN stamped in gold.
The cup measures 3 1/2"" at the bowl, 4 1/4"" to the handle and 2 1/4"" tall.
The saucer in 5 1/2" in diameter.
I have 2 of these teacups, both in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks or even gold loss. There are a few speckles which you can see in the pictures-a black dot in one bowl and a green mark on one of the saucers are the ones that I notice.
Since I do have 2 of these teacups and saucers, I will sell 1 for $20 or both of them for $30.
They are a cute little set -- a perfect springtime or Mother's Day gift.
