I have a tea set consisting of 3 teacups with a dragon emblem on each cup, sugar bowl and creamer (dragon colors from top to bottom are - Red, Gold and Green) and a raised Geisha lithophane that I believe is the “Worried Geisha” at the bottom of each cup with an m shaped signature inside by the rim. Also on the outside of the cups is a large red Chinese mark (looks like maybe another signature).
The Sugar Bowl and the Creamer both have the hallmark word “LUCKY” instead of the word “LUCKY CHINA”. I'm hoping this means it was pre-world war II.
Here are the particulars for each item:
- sugar bowl, 6 oz - height 3 inches, diameter 2.5 inches, handle-spread width 5 inches
- creamer, 4.5 oz - height 3 inches, diameter 2.5 inches, handle-spread width 3.5 inches
- tea cup, 1.5 oz - height 1.5 inches, top diameter 3 inches, bottom diameter 1.5 inches
•The Hallmark “LUCKY” under the creamer and sugar bowl
•Inside the tea cup is a raised Geisha Girls head.
•A picture from the web of the “Worried Geisha” which I believe to be the same as the raised Geisha in my cups.
•A picture of a tea cup with the “m” like signature.
•A picture of the 3 tea cups, sugar bowl and creamer
Thanks to Theodora Kalfopoulos for the pictures.
Anyone's help appraising this 3 pc China set would be greatly appreciated.
