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
