The patent was for a Fortune Telling Device. A little history about her was she was born 12/18/1882 and died 5/23/1967. She was the cavalry leader on a horse in the parade in Washington DC in 1913 for Woman's Suffrage. She worked for the Red Cross in France for many years and then studied Chi in China.
She died in Washington DC where she had lived most of her life. The cup and saucer have many symbols on them.
Too many descriptions of each for me to list but if you google her you will find what each one means. The man on the side of the cup is Lu Tung Pin Patron Genius of Fortune Tellers with His Demon Slayer. The design in the middle of saucer is Tai Chi.All the symbols are in great condition Cup and saucer are showing crazing. There are minor marks around the edge of the cup but no chips. The saucer has some small scrapes or chipping of just the stripe around the top of saucer but no other chips or cracks.
The symbol in the middle of saucer has some scratches from the cup. Was not able to find any information on how many Canonsburg made for her. There is one of these on display in a New York Museum.
