Gempo egg cups

made in Japan, 1972-1974

Here are two egg cups made by Gempo Pottery in the early 70s. The egg cups feature the abstract, large –faced form that marks all Gempo pottery. They are also particular to their period; with stylised features, and the stoneware pottery glazed in rustic creams and browns.

Since taking the image for this post, I’ve found another set of egg cups: this time it’s a boy and a girl. Collect the whole family! Avid readers will remember the Leo-the-lion Gempo moneybox posted previously.

This set of eggcups is for sale: $AUD40- but let me know if you’d like to discuss the boy & girl eggcup set also.
