Japanese Translucent Porcelain Tea Set w/Lithopane Geisha Cups. This tea Set is comprised of 6 each, cups, saucers, dessert plates and a serving size tea pot, sugar and creamer consisting of a total of 21 pieces. It is made of very translucent white Japanese porcelain known as "egg shell" china. This set is exquisitely hand painted in cherry blossoms with Mt Fuji in the background of a typical Japanese landscape. There is a lithopane geisha in the bottom of each cup. A lithopane is an etched or molded artwork in thin very translucent porcelain that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source and the design appears in gray tones which in this case is a Geisha. The tea set appears to have been made soon after WWII after the occupation of Japan had ended. Markings: Each piece of the tea set contains a rectangle which contain Japanese characters. "Japan" is written in English under the bottom of this rectangle. Each cup has the lithopane geisha.; Condition: The porcelain is not cracked, chipped or nicked and the design, including the gold overlay is not faded, worn or scratched in any manner. Featured by Suzeattic at www.goantiques.com
