This Monami tea cup and saucer is a masterpiece by Marianne Westman, who was the main designer of the long-established Swedish tableware manufacturer Rorstrand. Mon Amie means "lover" in French.

This cup is a vintage item manufactured in Sweden between 1951 and 1987. Monami still produces reprinted mugs, etc., but this bowl-shaped teacup is not available for resale as it is made in Indonesia. There are tea cups and small coffee cups, but this is a large capacity tea cup. This is one of Monami's classic items.

The major difference between Monami's reprint and the original is the color of the base. The reprint version has a pure white background, but the original has an off-white and subdued color tone. In addition, the blue in the reprint is uniform and bright, but the original is hand-painted, so each piece has a different shade of blue, similar to ultramarine blue. The reprint version is a mass-produced product that is too white and too blue, but the vintage version is rich in expression and allows you to feel the spirit of the craftsman.
