Green Enamel Geisha Girl Japanese Porcelain Teacup and Saucer
This lovely green trimmed tea cup and saucer pair features Geisha girls surrounded by a garden scene. The pieces are enhanced with painted details over transfer printed designs. As with many Geisha Girl designs, there is a mountain depicted in the background, presumed to be Mt. Fuji. The pieces date to the late Taisho to early Showa period.
The saucer has a diameter of 5.5 inches. The diameter of the cup is 4 inches and the depth is 2 inches. There is some loss of paint around the edges of the saucer and cup. The wear is consistent with age.
