I have a small lithophane cup with initials JW and dates 1870-1911 on the outside. The lithophane is in the bottom of the cup. I have found a few the same on the internet, but no one seems to know who the bearded man in the lithophane is, or the reason for production of the cups. I am in the United States.

Some of the sitting nudes, especially those on what looks like ocean rocks, might be of ama divers, who dived nude. By the post-war period, the nudity was mostly for tourist attraction ;)

Absolutely Love this site! I found that I have a very unique Lithophane and did not even realize it. Please excuse my ignorance. I went to take pictures of it and discovered that I had a very unique sake cup. What an incredibly mix of cultures. Cowboy Santa on the front and the Geisha. Left facing "Common Geisha" at that. It is also marked on the bottom with a "M" inside a heart. I could not figure out how to send pictures. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your site. You truly can find beauty everywhere.

Stephanie

I was very pleased to discover your collection of Geishas! I have a an 88 piece set with the image of what you have listed as the "Elaborate Geisha" under rare and hard to find. I am interested in finding out more about my lovely Geisha and this set if you know anything more I'd be appreciative of the knowledge!

Thank you for the informative page. I have 2 Lithopane cups, one Dragon ware and a smaller sorta-satsuma cup. I didn't know about the complexity of designs within the cups, Again, thank you!

Hi Helen,
What a great site you've put together, I've really enjoyed my visit.

I found a coffee set in an old shed I was demolishing, it's the dragon pattern, (gilded), with the more common Geisha. I've had them for a number of years now, but only just thought to do the research, and you've given me a great start.

Oh dear, something else to collect!

Thank you.

Adam.

I have a few lithophane Geisha cups, saucers, 1-8 piece saki set, I would love to sell. Most of them are dragonware and one is a gold bamboo print cup and saucer. I have 1 nude geisha in rose pattern demitasse cup and saucer. I would love to sell these. They were collected by my mother.

Hello,


It's great to hear from lithophane enthusiasts but I need to emphasise that I am an amateur and a collector. I'm not qualified to give valuations and I am only interested in the intrinsic beauty of these items.. If your interest is in finding out how much money you can get for them the only advice I can really give is to approach a local auction house.


I can't reply to emails asking how much you can get by selling them..
