Help identifying moss rose teacup

CakePieNovember 24, 2012

I've inherited some teacups from my great grandmother, and I have searched and searched to find out what two of them are.

The cups are unmarked they have a kind of scalloped feel on the cup itself and on the bottom. They have gold on the top and the handle, no motif inside and they are sort of see trough if I hold them up to the light.

The only thing I was able to find out is that the pattern looks like "moss rose".

Sorry for the poor image, I'll try to take a better one soon!

Hmm I see. That makes it kind of difficult to find any similar cups. Thank you for the input :)

Not necessarily......lots of companies in different countries made a moss rose pattern for lots of years.....

Here is a link that might be useful: Japan moss Rose cup and saucer

I haven't yet seen any cup that looked like the two I have.

Ah, thank you for the link. I have looked there however and there was nothing to find. Sigh. Appears "my cups" were never really popular.
