The Phoenix in Japan (known as HOWO) appears to be a combination of pheasant and peacock. It is a rare bird that only makes its appearance on earth when spectacular events or a new age of peace and splendor is about to begin. The phoenix is normally shown with its wings spread out as it attacks a serpent with its claws. Borders on the porcelain vary but often contain stylized mountains and clouds known as the Noritake pattern.
This lovely set of 5 Japan juice or wine glasses , circa 1920's, are covered with images of the Phoenix or Flying Turkey, floral blossoms, scrolls of foliage and geometric designs in hues of shaded blue transfer on a white porcelain blank. The pieces have a slight variation in design and show two different Japanese marks. The glasses measure 2 5/8" in height and 2 5/8" across the top. Two are stamped in blue with a Japanese letter within a cherry blossom and "Japan"; three are stamped in blue with an "M" within an arched wreath and "Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
