Description: - Earthenware Cup of acceptable quality, made in Japan, probably at the time of the Meiji Era (1868-1912), incorporating the "Navy Blue" of the classic Imperial Satsuma Style.
- The Cup is in very good condition, especially the gilt ones which are well preserved.
- The defects detected in the Cup are limited to important bubbles in many parts, and in particular those located in the White Enamel, due to its manufacture. It also presents a more pronounced wear in the gilt of its handle.
- The Cup has a medium thickness, without sound to the touch, made with a light beige earthenware, giving a result of yellowish appearance with colorless enamel. All the enamel of the Cup is cracked in very small fractions. The earthenware contains a quality that could bring it closer to that of stoneware.
- On the outside, the Cup has a "Golden" background, crossed by a band of "Marine Blue" with golden flowers, so that dark tones dominate. It has several characteristic Japanese figures drawn on it. Two women expressing tolerance and five men expressing aggression. All the figures are intertwined by a Dragon with scales in relief of White Enamel.
- On the lower side of its base, which has been left with the colour of the earthenware, is stamped the Seal of the Mark. This Seal includes a gold "Circle with a Cross" on a brown base, a sign of the Monk Shimazu. Also, the other Signs that appear on the Seal probably identify the place where it was made and the name of the manufacturer.
- Inside, the Cup has been left in the color of the earthenware. On the upper face of its base, that is to say, at the bottom of its interior, two characteristic Japanese figures of men expressing resignation have been drawn.
- After analyzing the Mug carefully, we have come to the conclusion that the technique for its decoration is mixed, using decals in some places and drawing by hand most of the Mug.
- All these characteristics that the Cup has, provide a very interesting patina, with a very attractive and quality aspect.

Comments: - We have 1 Plate, 5 Cups and a Milk Jug to match.
- Both measurements and weight are approximate.
- Very interesting as a collector's item and a decorative element.
- Spectacular in an illuminated niche, with minimalist decoration.
- Because it is inevitable the differences of tonalities between photos and reality, it is necessary to have present that the tones of the colors of the photos are not exactly equal to the tones of the real colors.
- The Object presents the wear and tear of its time, as well as some stains. It has small flaws.
- The data provided here are non-contrasting personal opinions.
