Donated in 1975 as part of the Quinn Collection, museum guests usually question the Japanese origin of this cup and saucer set because of the handle on the cup. Named for the design, Geisha girl porcelain was made in Japan for the export market in the late 19th and early 20th century. Created as an inexpensive product it was typically sold in dime stores. Quality, patterns, border colours and maker marks vary. The Geisha girl porcelain found in the York Sunbury Museum collection does not have a makers mark.
