Fine Chinese Imari teacup and saucer

This beautiful Chinese Imari teacup and saucer is decorated with a rock, bamboo and peony pattern. This central decoration is surrounded along the rim by an attractive floral border. The detail in the decoration is quite exceptional. The same is the case for the quality of the porcelain. This set is made out of extremely thin fine porcelain and is as a result highly translucent. This set is an excellent example of the export porcelain produced during the reign of the Chinese emperor Qianlong (1736-1795). It dates from around 1740. The diameter of the saucer is 4 inches (just over 10 cm) and the height of the cup is almost 1.5 inches (3.5 cm).

Excellent, with both pieces having some rubbing to the gold highlights. Otherwise, the saucer is perfect and only has some original glazing errors. The cup has some fritting to the fragile rim.

Qianlong, circa 1740.

Price $160
