Judging from the marking and inscription the
cup should be Japanese made.
The blue marking reads,
白芳  Hakuho(u)
Under this name I could not find any pottery or
porcelain maker in Japan.
The black inscription reads,
近江屋商店  Oumiya Shouten (Store(s))
Throughout the country there are a few dozens of stores and shops with this name selling different types of commodities, including
porcelains.
We also can not rule out the possibility of
being Korean made.

With regards,
I.Nagy
