Hello Helen,

We are wondering if there are any manufacturers that currently make lithophane china. I work with an artist whose work looks beautiful in lithophane form (it's been used on nightlights and lamps). Now he's working on an Alice in Wonderland book and it would be marvelous to have the image on teacups.


Please email me if you know of anyone who still makes this beautiful art form.


Thanks!

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
