Chinese cup and saucer with figures


Description
This cup and saucer set is decorated with an unusual decoration. Depicted are three figures on a branch of a large tree. The decoration likely refers to an old Chinese legend. The central decoration of the saucer is surrounded by a simple border. The same border can also be found on the interior of the teacup. This set is an excellent example of Chinese export porcelain from the middle of the 18th century. The diameter of the saucer is 4.25 inches (11 cm) and the height of the teacup is 1.5 inches (4 cm).

Condition
Good, with both the cup and the saucer having some small chips and glaze wear to the rim. In addition, the cup has a 1-inch hairline fracture.

Age
Qianlong, circa 1760.

Price $185
