Any antique pros out there (particularly fine china) ? I have a cool piece...
I have this teacup and saucer piece. The decorations are raised. Hand painted. I have found very similiar peices but it is the marking I am curious about. All the others are on a gold sticker, says "made in Japan", or some other symbol. Mine simply says "Japan". I have googled every type of wording I can think of and can't find this particular stamp.
Also, I think it is porcelain. When I hold it up to the light, I can see light shining through.
It's interesting to see so many cups with such a similiar design and I've been having fun looking it up.
Any advice would be awesome! =]
