Customer Question

I have 2 tea cups. One is marked Noritake (Made in Occupied Japan) , the other is larger with an oval on the bottom that has a hand holding a sword on it. I can't make out the writing. Are these true antiques and are they worth anything?
JA: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
