A thinly potted 18th Century teacup with a fine painting of children at play with quail in the grass using over glaze enamels. One boy is climbing a tree and the other is standing on a rock. The designs are quickly drawn. The background glaze is a bit off-white with a buff color cast. The glaze feels very smooth to the touch.

The hand potted porcelain cup has a thin raised foot ring. It is not glazed but the base is glaze. The cup is thin and translucent.

MEASUREMENTS

3” (7.6 cm) diameter x 1 ½” (3.8 cm) tall. Weighs 1.7 oz (50 g)

CONDITION

The porcelain has many light scratches but most of the enamels are still bright and colorful. There are no breaks, chips, or cracks. There are kiln flaws such as reserve pimples, black spots, grit and bumps. There is some discoloration along the rim from tea.

A delicate small cup with a fun, intricate painting that will be a great addition to a collection.
