Fine Fukagawa Sake Cup
Click on image above for more views

.

This delicate sake (saki) cup with the 'mountain and river' mark of Fukagawa and the colors of the Imari wares of Arita is truly a work of art in miniature. Measuring only 2" in diameter x 13/16" high, this piece displays more intricacy and detail than pieces many times its size. The 3 reserves of Phoenix are bordered with underglaze blue and gilt while the rest of the interior design is medallions with differing patterns. The only exterior decoration is 2 gilt bands around the foot rim, which do show some wear. This little cup is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, enamel loss or repairs ......SOLD
