Cup and saucer with a lithophane in the base of the cup

A lithophane is a moulded 3D image in very thin translucent porcelain that can be seen clearly only when back lit with a bright light. The design in the base of this cup looks like a Japanese Geisha Girl. Apparently the Chinese characters on the base can be translated as 'Special Make Japan'.
