1 in stock


  • Pattern:  Unknown - Pink Cranes
  • Made in Japan
  • Vintage:  1950's - 1960's
  • Details:  This is a gorgeous set of two Japanese tea cups.  The detail in these is amazing!  The pattern shows two Manchurian cranes (or Japanese cranes aka Red Crowned Cranes), in flight.  The larger one is pink with tiny little white "feathers", gold wings, a green tail and of course, the red crown.   The smaller one follows in the background all gold with a green tail.  There is a pink branch with pretty gold and green blossoms in the background as well.  The cup has the beautiful soft green iridescent finish all the way around the upper half of the cup and a high shine glaze overall.   The rest of the cup is white. There is no gold rim, however there is a gold ring around the foot.   They are not stamped on the bottom, however we have similar ones stamped Japan.  Did you know these Red Crowned Cranes mate for life? This would be a lovely gift for a bridal shower with some fine teas.  A unique find for the tea cup collector,  great gift for a host or hostess, perhaps with a bag of tea, or of course for your favorite tea lover or you!
