Once used as a parlor game back in the 20s and 30s, this 'Romany Fortune Telling Tea Cup' is a great little piece for any collector or admirer of the occult and supernatural.

Featuring 52 fantastic illustrations inside the cup along with a couple on the cup and saucer, both are in great condition for their age, with not a chip or crack in sight, just some light surface wear.

The original instructions which can be found as a PDF download elsewhere on Etsy state 'It is quite simple. Leave a little tea in the bottom of the cup. Then, lifting the cup, turn it in a circle from left to right three times. Place it upside down in the saucer for a moment or two to drain. Now turn it up and note where the leaves lie. Consult the corresponding numbers and symbols here, and you will get your fortune'.

Marked 'Made In England Reg. No. 799240' in green on the base, the cup measures approximately 11cm long to the handle, 9.5cm in diameter and 6cm tall, while the saucer has a 14.5cm diameter and sits 2cm tall.

Width: 9.5 cm
Height: 6.0 cm

Estimated Time: Less than one week
