This very elegant cup and saucer set is marked Rose China and was made in Occupied Japan, with the Rose China (Noritake) backstamp. The pattern is exquisite, with a combination of pale cream and snow white colors, highlighted with a light sienna scroll border and a repeat cartouche of roses and scrolls.
The footed cup is gold enhanced on the base, rim and handle, and the rounded handle shape very comfortable. It measures 2 1/8 inches high and 3 3/4 inches across the rim. The saucer is edged in gold, with a snow white center for the cup placement, surrounded by the pale cream color and elegant design. Saucer measures a little over 5 1/2 inches. The porcelain is semi-translucent when held to the light.
This lovely vintage set is in very good condition, with no cracks or chips. There is some gold wear evident on the cup handle.
