A HARD TO FIND, hand painted JAPANESE PORCELAIN Trio from the LATE 19TH CENTURY- early 20th century.
This beautiful cup; saucer & plate set was made in by the famous Koransha (Company of the SCENTED ORCHID) Porcelain company in the IMARI colour palette.
Though unmarked, it was purchased with the matching teapot (listed separately) that was marked with the Koransha mark: hand painted overglaze red oxide mark of an orchid to the base, so it is definitely KORANSHA manufacture.
The set features a beautiful, and elegant design of a bamboo grove painted in underglaze blue and fine gold enamelling with a hand painted diaper border.
As you can see from the many photos, it displays nicely.
The CUP is near PERFECT. It measures approx. 5 cm high x 9 wide.
However, the saucer & plate are rubbed and chipped and the saucer has a small hairline. (See pics # 6-10).
The plate measures c. 18 cm diameter.
The 3 pieces weighs 500 grams before packing.
With PROFESSIONAL REPAIR, it would make a FABULOUS addition to any GOOD COLLECTION of EARLY KORANSHA porcelains.
