Face Cup

August 1st, 2010 admin

I found an old tea cup from China that has a womans face molded into the bottom of the cup. Is this common?

It's a tea cup and saucer. It's very light weight, and translucent. There are markings on the outside bottom, and the inside bottom looks blank, until you hold it up to the light. Here you find the face of an oriental woman.

They are not real common but not scarce either. I see them from time to time at flea markets, where they want to much for them. I now live in Northern New England and they were much more common in California when I lived. back in the 1970's - late 1980's. I do see them here once in a great while. Most want $25 for the cup and saucer. The Japanese girl is a Geisha. They were also sold on military bases during the Vietnam war. I got some from the 1960's when I was in Japan during the war, with dragons on the outside and the face inside. They are an interesting item and most Americans have never seen one.
