  • 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!   
  • Materials:  Bone China

    Absolutely perfect. These guys don’t kid around when it comes to packaging. I think it was 6 forms of protection, all told. If you’d allow a brief story, years ago my Mom bought this set for her mother, complete with bowls and teapot. When grandmother died, it went to a cousin in Missouri. 27 years later, it came here to Texas and went to me, minus one cup, which had broken who knows how long ago. I didn’t expect much luck finding a replacement with no sort of maker’s mark, but by some miracle, googling “japanese crane tea set two person” got this listing as the sixth image result. Came in today and I am ecstatic to have the gang all together.
