I have a set of cherry blossoms china that my father bought his mother over 80 years ago. They have the, "Sad Geisha" in the bottom of the cups. Are all of yours from the bottom of cups?

I was thrilled find this website and view the images. We have several sets of Japanese cups and saucers. We made it our mission to find in antique malls. That is many years back and we now would like to sell them. Not asking values but seek buyers if possible. We have two unique cups and saucers obviously custom made perhaps for a rancher. They have handpainted bluebonnets on the outside and the image in the cup is of a steers head. Being a Texan, I am keeping those two. LOL

Thanks for the images and different quality info.

Cherry

Hi Helen,

I'm glad I came upon your site. Helps most definately. When my mother passed away, there were some dishes that she had purchased that I would imagine was for collecting that were left to me. Unfortunately the Dragonware (now identified thanks to your site) Geisha Girl teacups do not have any kind of ink at the bottom of the cup just the imprint of the Geisha Girl, so it is hard to find out exactly which one I have. Also on the bottom of the creamer & sugar bowl is the one word “LUCKY” in red surrounded by some artistic design. Not Japan or Occupied Japan just LUCKY. I have not seen this anywhere in my research, can you shed any kind of light on that? Or anyone reading your Guestbook. On your home page, I have dishes like the last picture on the bottom right; the gold gilded. I have 3 cups, Creamer and Sugar bowl without cover. But like I said, Geisha Girls have no ink just the imprint making it hard to identify. Any tricks you know of? JThanks. Again Great Site! ~Fox

Dea Helen,

I have a 60 piece white and red kutami dragon dinner set -minus 4 cups with the sad geisha in the "egg shell" cups. The family had the 4 cups broken in an earthquake and we have searched everywhere to match the cups. Any ideas to help us? I was interested to learn that our geisha is "sad"- thanks for your information

Hi Helen, Thanks for all the info on your great site--I now know that my little tea set is called coralene or glass bead dragonware and the type of geisha is quizzical--since today is Mothers Day here in the US I got thinking about this since my Mom bought it for me at a yard sale years ago--its such a treasure of mine. I've been trying to do more research on it, checking e bay ect but can't find anything about the mark on the bottom--its a red oval with 2 japanese I presume symbols inside-do you know anything about this mark? The base color is royal blue with brush strokes in it and the dragon is brown white orange gold and green- -The tea /coffee pot only holds about 2 cups , I only have 2 little demitas size cups but 6 saucers and a creamer. Thanks , Patty

Hi,

My mother left me an antique tea set. I have been searching everywhere to find out anything I can about the set. It is in perfect condition and over 40 years old. I recently found out that the lady in the bottom of the tea cups is a lithophane geisha. That's all I know. Any information that you can give me about the tea set would be very helpful.


Thanks.
