on sides. A house. A pair of compasses near the rim. Several small triangles scattered about. Initial letters ‘L’ (twice), ‘N,’ and ‘V’ (twice).
There is nothing very significant in this tea-cup. The wavy lines denote a troublesome journey leading to some small amount of luck in connection with a person or place whose name begins with the initial ‘E.’ The hour-glass near the rim and the place from which the journey starts denotes that it will be undertaken in order to avoid some imminent peril. The numeral ‘4’ conjoined with the sign of a parcel shows that one may be expected in that number of days.
Initial ‘E’ in conjunction with Horse-shoe.
Hour-glass near rim.
Parcel in conjunction with numeral ‘4.’
This shows, by means of the crescent moon on the side, prosperity and fortune as the result of a journey denoted by the lines. The number of triangles in conjunction with the initial ‘H’ indicates the name commences with that letter, and, being near the rim, at no great distance of time. The bird flying towards and near the handle, accompanied by a triangle and a long envelope, denotes good news from an official source. The flag gives warning of some danger from an enemy.
Crescent moon. Bird flying. Triangles. Flag. Initial ‘A’ in conjunction with sign of letter in official envelope. Other initials, ‘H’ and two ‘L’s.’
The consultant is about to journey eastward to some large building or institution, shown by the figure at the end of the straight line of dots. There is some confusion in his or her affairs caused by too much indulgence in pleasure and gaiety, denoted by the butterfly involved in obscure groups of tea-leaves near the handle. The tree and the fleur-de-lys (or lily) in the bottom of the cup are, however, signs of eventual success, probably through the assistance of some person whose name begins with an ‘N.’
