This week’s tea cup comes from Japan. My uncle was in the Merchant Navy and travelled all over the world, bringing my Gran back lots of interesting things.
This type of china was very common, I believe.
I had packed it away years ago, but after a bit of a search, found it in a box on the top shelf of the cupboard.
A quick wash, and it was ready for photographing.
Hold the cup up to the light and you can see a geisha!

Oh wow ~ how beautiful! Love Brenda
My Nan and Pop had a similar tea set...I used to love looking at the "magical" geisha when I was little.
I'd love to go to Japan one day - it's on the lengthy list of 'when I have money' wants! That hidden Geisha is fantastic.
That is beautiful - loved your last post about Glasgow too. x
Oh it's an absolutely gorgeous set, the concealed Geisha is just amazing too!
I love the hidden geisha....how on earth did they do that???
Sweet - even nicer with the family connection and the hidden geisha!
Lovely tea-set, with the hidden Geisha, what fun! Thanks for visiting Liz and leaving your lovely comments, love Linda x
