Japanese Demitasse Cup 1920s


Shipping to United States: $5.25

This is an interesting old cup, and has an interesting mark on the bottom. There is a red-orange circle with a slash next to it, the circle is outlined in gold with a Japanese mark in gold on the circle. It is a demitasse, 2.5" high and the top is 2.5" in diameter. It is a very busily painted cup with flowers of all types, a house, fences, and designs, mostly in red and gold but there is some pinks, blues, black and yellows as well. Some flowers look realistic, some don't.

The footed bottom is scalloped and the bone china is very thin but wasn't well maid. The painting on the edges is sloppy, the gilding overdone. Possibly the work of an apprentice?

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
