These are antiques. There is some shelf wear. After all, they are nearly 100 years old, some are older. Any flaws you see in the photos are either manufacturing blemishes, such as a paint dab here or there or from normal handling and shelf wear.

Notable Distinctions: petal shaped foot on cup and petal shape saucer. Marked “Japan” or has sticker.

Original Instruction booklet included. Booklet shows yellowing from age, handling and a few water spots. It is SUPER RARE to find a cup with its original booklet.

Cup has a few paint flecks here and there from manufacturing and saucer shows some shelf wear around the edge.

This is a beautiful cup. We love the mint green color. Printed with red & black playing cards inside the cup and the words "Cup of Knowledge" around the rim.

These fortune telling teacups are from my personal Collection. Each cup is antique and unique. All cups are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or other issues, and the gold trim is intact. Some slight crazing may appear from age, please check photos carefully.

Teacups from this era are normal teacup size, not oversized cups. Small and dainty. With that being said, realize they are also very fragile.

I do not recommend pouring boiling hot water in these due to their age. Although they are still usable, I personally would not risk cracking them.

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. (Including myself)

Please look at the additional pictures for this tea cup & saucer set. If you would like to see additional images, or a specific part of the tea cup or saucer, please feel free to contact me.

Each cup is described to the absolute best of my knowledge. Any glares or spots you may see on any photos are from my seriously lacking photography skills. Any blemishes are described above.
