A wonderful pair of 19th century Chinese Black Papier Mache cups in a tea bowl shape. A lovely chinoiserie design resonates throughout each cup as it depicts people in different scenes with various landscapes. Mother-of-pearl colors used are white, pink, blue and green and the combination is quite striking and extremely powerful as it is set against the black background. Inside the cups is a treated subdued silver foil lining. Quite extraordinary is this pair of 19th century Chinese Papier Mache Cups with their wonderful designs and colors.
