These vintage Fire King jadeite cups and saucers are from the 1940's and although they're not all marked on the bottom, most are, and they're all the same ribbed pattern, known as "Jane Ray". If you know anything about Fire King jadeite pieces, you'll know that not all pieces were marked. Highly produced patterns would go through a number of different moulds. Moulds acquire cumulative layers of glass with each use until they are finally rendered useless and new moulds had to be made. At that time, any new management decisions about how the new pieces ought to be marked would be implemented. Not all moulds with a particular mark will wear out at the same time, so for brief periods, two or more kinds would have been used at once.
These all came from one ladies collection and being her and I know each other, she contacted me to give me the first opportunity to buy them. Lucky me.
All pieces are in exceptionally nice condition considering they're pushing 80 years old. The cups and 2 inches tall and 3 3/4 inches across the top. The plates are 5 3/4 inches across.
