    Hi dear Members,

    Found this beauty today and would like to find out when and where it could been made.
    Unfortunately it came without saucer and there is no any mark on it.
    It's made in very thin porcelain(?) and the pattern is similar to Kutani thousand cranes, but I couldn't find online any exactly the same as mine.

    Any thoughts will be highly appreciated:)

    Yes, it's Japanese eggshell porcelain from the Kutani region. It looks like inter-war production 20's/30's. Without a mark it isn't going to be possible to trace the factory, patterns were not exclusive and mostly not recorded.
