Iron Red and Gilt teacup and saucer

This Iron Red and Gilt teacup and saucer is decorated with attractive flowers in overglaze red and gold, a style of decoration sometimes also referred to as "Rouge de Fer". Along the rim a narrow band is present in the same palette. This set is made out of fine porcelain. It is an excellent example of the high quality wares made during the reign of the Chinese emperor Yongzheng (1723-1735). The diameter of the saucer is 4.75 inches (12 cm) and the height of the teacup is 1.5 inches (4 cm).

Perfect, with only some rubbing to the enameled highlights.

Yongzheng, circa 1730.

Price $290
