This fab vintage hand-painted “Noah’s Ark” shaped eggcup was made circa the 1930’s or 1940’s in Japan. Similar to the lovely bright coloured version, this eggcup is finished mainly in white and has an iridescent lustre finish.
This eggcup is in excellent condition for its age with no chips, cracks or restoration work. There are some age related crazing, minor firing faults and fading to the hand-painted colour in places, but it is in overall good presentable and collectable condition.
The coloured version of this eggcup was also featured in the Miller’s Collectables Price Guide 2009 and is a very rare and collectable piece to find in this condition.
