Beautifully Hand-painted antique Kutani straight-sided cup, large size, with wonderful scenes of Boys & girls playing various games: Five boys playing spinning Top with adorable clothing and hats; total of 11 figures. Grandmother, bent over carrying a picnic basket, what seems to be "lunch!" for the children. exquisitely drawn; very fine details, all enamel and gold intact, has had two flakes restored on rim, has two light hairlines on saucer, cup has roughness on rim. very translucent porcelain, handle perfect. Cup has a rounded-edge near base, quite nice, that does not invert on interior, maybe this was done to add weight to the cup. Lovely Blue mountains in background with a lake & flowering/fruitful trees! Delightful! Measures: cup 3 3/4" W. X 2 1/4" H., Saucer is 5 1/2". W. 7/8"H. As good as the photographs may be, they do not pick up well on the gold color and details.. Truly much nicer in person...
