The decoration is a vintage pattern with green leaves, deep burgundy grapes and gold branches and tendrils.

Next Piece

Fine Japanese Tall Cup and Saucers

Admittedly I know little about Japanese porcelain but I can spot quality when I see it. There is one cup or beaker and two saucers of eggshell thin porcelain. The painting over the glaze is sharply delineated with rich colors and gold. I believe it dates from the 2nd half of the 19th century.
