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 6 Japan tea cups & saucers, 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 cups measure 3 1/2" across and 2 1/4" in height; the saucers measure 5 3/8" across. All pieces are stamped in blue "Japan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
