|This tea-cup appears to give warning by
the flag in conjunction with a rifle and the
letter 'V' that some friend of the
consultant will be wounded in battle, and as
there is a coffin in the bottom of the cup
that the wounds will be fatal. On the other
side, however, a scepter, surrounded by
signs of honors, seems to indicate that 'V'
will be recognized by his sovereign and a
decoration bestowed upon him for bravery in
battle, shown by the initial 'K' accompanied
by a letter-sign, and by the astrological
sign of Mars, intervening between these and
Coffin in bottom, in conjunction with 'V.'
Flag in conjunction with rifle on side.
Scepter on side.
Large initial 'K' with letter sign near
Astrological sign of Mars between them.
Initial 'V' near flag and rifle.
If the consultant be single
this cup will, by means of the hare on the
side, tell him that he will speedily be
married. The figure of a lady holding out an
ivy-leaf is a sign that his sweetheart will
prove true and constant, and the heart in
conjunction with a ring and the initial 'A'
still further points to marriage with a
person whose name begins with that letter.
The flower, triangle, and butterfly are all
signs of prosperity, pleasure and happiness.
Hare sitting on side.
Butterfly near rim.
Heart and ring.
Large flower on edge of bottom.
Figure of woman holding ivy-leaf in bottom.
Initials 'A' and small 'C' with dots.
