The Morley House Tea Leaf Reading Tea Cup set

Although tea lead reading has proved to be quite popular in Australia and New Zealand, practitioners of this art have tended to rely on cups and saucers made in England or Japan. The lovely cups maked for the Australian Pavilion at the 1924-25 British Empire Exhibition at Wembley were all made in England. Likewise, the cups marked for the 1925-1926 Dunedin Exhibition in New Zealand by Bridgwood were actually manufactured in England, as were the Aynsley Cup of Knowledge sets marked for Dunedin.

The only cups associated with Australian manufacture are the Morley House symbol reading set of 1992 and the artisanal Tea With Karin line of cartomancy reading cups. Neither of these business identifies as a pottery manufacturing company, however.

The Morley House set is "decorated by Westminster China," probably over tea sets that were made in Japan or China.

he Tea With Karin line consists of over-glazed fortune-telling cup and saucer sets with markings on a variety of vintage and contemporary tea sets, most of which were either made in England or Europe.
