MORIAGE: The Japanese artisans were notorious for their extensive use of moriage, also known as slip. LITHOPANE: Lithopane refers to the picture made in the bottoms of cups, typically Sake and tea cups. The face in the bottom of the cups can easily bee seen if you hold them up to a light, and are typically the faces of women. ** The Japanese began creating them in the late 1800s and continued until the 1950s. The cups are usually quite thin and the picture is created by varying the thickness of the porcelain in the bottom of the cup. The detail exhibited by this seemingly simple process is sometimes mind boggling. Most were made for the tourist trade and many were bought by WWII service men to send or bring home to wives, sweethearts and mothers. Condition: excellent vintage condition no chips or cracks
