Description:

Taisho period Japanese eggshell porcelain cup and saucer.  The cups have the Lithophane, Geisha Girl’s head to the base of the cups (hold the cup to the light and you can see the image of a Geisha Girl in the base of the cup – see photo).  The decoration depicts three small yellow breasted birds; two in flight and one perched on a bank close to a river.  Close by are Bamboo Canes.  Gilt/gold is applied to highlight the feathers of the birds, the Bamboo leaves, the bank as it goes down to the river and the ripples of the water running over stones and the 'foam' it produces.  Around the outer edge of the saucer and cup is a band of brown with a gilt/gold decoration applied to it.
