At the time these and numerous other items were available grocery store promotions and giveaways in movie theatres. Or less commonly known as “Kimono Lady” ware.

Over 100 patterns were available but all feature Japanese ladies in brightly-painted kimonos, typically surrounded by temples, lakes or gardens. Because they were free or inexpensive, they quickly became very popular.  This teacup and saucer is a perfect example delicate thin eggshell porcelain, rusty orange, accented in gold so beautiful.

 At we have this beautiful item and many more.
