  • Pattern:  Espresso Cup & Saucer, Hand Painted Golden Wheat #3196 (Discontinued)
  • Made in: Japan
  • Vintage: 1950's - 1960's 
  • Details:  A beautiful and RARE, set of two demitasse cups with their matching saucers from Tilso Japan. They are delicate and beautiful with gold wheat stalks and other gold accents. These pieces are high quality porcelain, very translucent. This pattern #3196, matches the Lefton pattern #20595, exactly.  Not sure how both Lefton and Tilso ended up with the same pattern but since they were both importers, they may have purchased from the same Japan maker.  All four pieces retain their original Tilso foil labels.  We also carry the matching sugar and creamer in pattern 20595 from Lefton if you're interested in more of this pattern, (last picture).  Excellent hostess gift, maybe add a wonderful bag of espresso coffee.

Tilso Japanese Import Company was founded in 1913 by Batlin and Son, an antique dealer.  After the depression they formed Tilso but didn't really grow in popularity until after WWII.  They named the company Tilso for their daughters Tillie and Sonia,  combined names.  Tilso imported many different products including ceramic figurines, containers, cookie jars, etc.  Tilso was in business until 1976, some of their pieces are harder to find because the foil labels have been removed from most pieces.
