Japanese Dragonware Tea Cup and Saucer - Occupied Japan
Japan was occupied from 1945 to 1952. This provides very accurate dating of these items. The finish is matte with a gilded glaze finish inside the cup and moriage decorations on both. The dragon completely surrounds the cup and provides the focal point of the saucer. The cup is 2.25 inches tall, 2.5 inches across at the top, and 1.5 inches at the base. Both the cup and saucer are in good condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing.
