Phoenix Blue and White Cup
by Vickie Costello
Bird and longest crack
I bought this cup almost 12 years ago in the midwest at an old antique shop that was in a old bowling alley. I haven't done much research on it. Of course I am hoping that it is an antique. I will leave the pics and let you have a say. I believe that the bird on it is a Phoenix. Looks like maybe a Greek key pattern around the top and bottom? I am not all certain of the folige pattern on it. The pattern is a transfer, you can see that it continues around the bottom edge. I tried to load a close-up so that the concentric rings on the outside of the cup were visible. Also there are 2 cracks almost opposite of each other. One is quite a bit longer than the other. 2.25" H x 2.75" W. at the mouth.
I have other pics if they are needed. I have these pictures 1200 px on the L side.
