Of course, a 4 star admiral is also known as a “Full Admiral” – the highest rank (that the Navy made dining china for). There weren’t many full admiral’s, so the dining china made specifically for that rank is SCARCE. Hard to tell the age, but it was probably from the 1940’s to the 1960’s. As is not unusual for a demi cup, it has no maker’s markings on the bottom but the style of the decorations indicate that it was made by TEPCO – (the TEPCO factory burned down in 1968). Note: Some will falsely claim that this pattern is older than it is, but there was a similar pattern, but with gold trim, in use in the 1930’s and before. The two photos show the same cup from different angles in order to show both the logo and handle. Item will be packed with care for safe transit. Maritime Commissary stock #SCU-12455.
