Rich red and a gold ring handle make this vintage Japanese courting couple teacup and saucer feel opulent and rich. The inside is bedecked in gold and the outside has a lacey gold on gold overlay.
This teacup and saucer are in very good vintage condition. There are no chips, cracks, crazing, hairlines, scratches, fading, paint strikes, restoration, wear, or repairs. The gold on the foot rim is incomplete as shown in the photographs, which is a decoration flaw and not wear. The cup rest has some slight pitting around the rim which is again a manufacturing flaw and not a condition issue. The items we sell are not new, they are vintage and have lived previous lives. As such, be aware that minor imperfections and flaws may exist. We endeavor to describe any and all anomalies, if any, that are present. Please examine the condition as the photographs are an integral part of our description and supersede any written word. Photographs have been taken using artificial light therefore slight color variations due to processing may be possible.
APPROXIMATE MEASUREMENTS: Cup-3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter (does not include handle) by 3.25 inches (8.25 cm) high. The saucer measures 5.5 inches (14 cm) in diameter.
