Memory of Grandmother's Tea Cups

When I was a little girl, my grandmother had these facinating tea cups with images of geisha at the bottom. When you help the cup bottom up to the light, you could see them very clearly.

This image is not of a tea cup, but the shadow area reminds me very much of those tea cups. It has a translucent quality very much the same. I will have to search among my (yet to be unpacked) things to see if I might have one of grandmother's set that I can paint in the near future.
