Vintage Goldfish Motif Pair of Porcelain Cups

Pair of Porcelain Cups with Motif of Goldfish


Late 20th century (1960)

This lively pair of cups is decorated with an embossed and stylized wave pattern, upon which various goldfish are painted. The interior is bare, save for a single goldfish at the bottom of the cup. When filled with tea, the viewing of the interior goldfish through the colored liquid playfully reminds the viewer of a murky fishpond, in which these creatures are usually found.
