    I've been searching for a cup like the one I have but everyone I've seen is different. This cup seems to be old but it has Japan on the bottom instead of makings. The bottom rim feels rough to the touch. This is a small cup, not the size of a regular coffee cup. There's a pheasant on one side and what looks to be a dragon on the other and they're collecting balls of wisdom (?). And, there's a gold web that's connecting both screens.

      I really like this cup and its singular Japan mark. It's a phoenix symbolizing female gender and the dragon usually is chasing flaming pearls of wisdom (Yang energy). Other squiggly lines could symbolize water.
