Nippon Yellow Floral Tea Cup Art Nouveau Japan Hand Painted Gilded 1920s Antique
This cute tea cup features an art nouveau style floral design around the rim, with gilding on the handle and outside rim. It is marked "Hand Painted Nippon" with the classic "M" in a wreath, which was used between 1911 - 1920. It is in very good condition, with no chips or cracks, and minimal crazing/paint loss. You can see a small manufacturing flaw on the bottom in the closeup of the makers mark. This is an uncommon shape & design for a Nippon tea cup.
