Teacup from Gertrude Rich Price



After my mother passed away, I received this beautiful and priceless teacup that was given to her by her grandmother.  I remember my mother had a special fondness for her grandmother Gertrude Price.  Gertrude Rich Price is the daughter of William Lyman Rich and Ella Amelia Pomeroy (she had a twin named Emma Adelia :). William Lyman Rich is the son of Charles C. Rich and Mary Ann Phelps.  This teacup was given to my mother and then it was given to me.  It was broken many years ago and glued back together.  I am hoping to find out where it came from, if it has some remaining sister pieces, and if replacements can be made.  Please leave a comment if you have any info about this pattern or the history of this teacup.  Thanks!

P.S.  This teacup is made by Ucagco in Japan.  Because it has “made in Japan” stamped on the bottom, it was most likely made after 1921.
