This is one of the first cup of fortune cups that we discovered. Cream colored with embossed flowers & leaves surround the cup and saucer. Red & black playing cards on the inside of the cup with the words "Cup of Knowledge". This also came issued with a zodiac symbol in the center of the saucer, this saucer is plain with no symbol.

The cup has some slight crazing on the underside of the cup in the center section only, you can not see it when the cup is upright. Very rare for one of these particular cups to not have crazing all over! It also has a small discoloration in the center of the cup (tea stain maybe) about the size of a grain of rice.

Cup: 2 1/4" h X 3.75 (rim diameter) inches. Saucer: 5 1/2 (diameter) inches.

These fortune telling teacups are from The Earth's Cauldron Antique Tea Cup Collection. Each cup is antique and unique. All cups are in excellent condition with no crazing, chips, cracks or other issues, and the gold trim is intact. If there are any issues with any of the cups in our collection, we will note it in the cup's description.

Each cup will be listed separately. The price reflects the current market value for each cup, as they are very valuable and highly sought after by collectors. (Includling myself)
