Tea Time 3 - Demitasse Ucagco Occupied Japan

Continuing my weekly tea cup posts, today I am sharing a beautiful little demitasse cup and saucer marked Ucagco China, Occupied Japan.


I paid $4 for the cup and saucer about a week and a half ago at a local consignment shop.








I was not able to find another cup like it on the internet. Not sure what kind of flowers are on it.


It is in very good condition with no damage. Very cute little feet, gold trim. Hope you enjoyed it!

  25. The US occupied Japan after World War II. My dad was in the Air Force and was posted to Okinawa right after I was born in 1952. Very interested to learn that some things are marked "Occupied Japan." Lovely little cup and saucer.

  26. A pretty teacup for a pretty price! "Occupied Japan" , a bit of WWII history right there.One of the things I especially appreciate about the Teacup Tuesdays is how much history is involved in china, pottery, teacups.
