At home she has a matching tea pot, sugar and creamer. Moran dated the set to 1949, explaining, “Sets like this one were incredibly popular with G.I.s coming back from World War II and Korea.” Made of lithopane, a very thin, translucent porcelain, the cup contained an etched image of a geisha that is not easily seen without backlighting. “People owned these for years and years and never realized there was a geisha looking at them from the bottom,” he said. The sets quickly became strictly decorative “because they can’t take the heat of a real cup of coffee.” He found a set exactly like it online that sold for $70 in 2014.
