Pair of Antique Chinese Export Cups

  • China, 19th century
  • Dimensions: 4 3/4 inches in diameter, 2 1/4 inches in height

An elegant pair of 19th century Chinese Export Wine Cups. The difference between a Chinese tea bowl/cup and a Chinese wine cup is the height and the width which defines their use. Wine cups are deeper and wider. Set on a white background, with brown decoration interspersed with gilt, these cups have a landscape design, consisting of flowers, leaves, and rocks. Landscape designs have always been used in the decoration of porcelain as well as on scrolls, books, and other forms of artwork. Scalloped edge on the tops with ridges throughout, this pair of Chinese 19th century Wine Cups would be a lovely addition to anyone’s porcelain collection. They are made in the 19th century with earlier marks which are featured on the bottom.
