A barbed rim teacup and saucer with delicate and intricate underglaze cobalt paintings of landscape scenes from the Kangxi era in China.

The thinly molded porcelain matching teacup and saucer have been painted in underglaze cobalt with pagodas, pine tree, water, fishermen, willow, and bamboo. I love the bamboo baskets for catching fish. The glaze is thick, shiny, and very smooth. The porcelain body is very white as is the glaze. The foot rings are not glazed.

MEASUREMENTS

Teacup – 2 ½” (6.4 cm) diameter x 1 3/8” (3.4 cm) tall
Saucer – 4” (10.2 cm) diameter x ¾” (1.9 cm) deep
Weighs 3.9 oz (110 g)

CONDITION

The saucer has a long rim chip that has broken off three of the rim barbs. The rim has numerous glaze frits, as well. There is a glaze hairline on the base and crazing to the glaze. The teacup had a break and was re-glued. The repair shows more in the inside of the teacup than the outside. The teacup rim also has a few frits. Both have rough spots on the foot rings and wear to the central well. There are kiln flaws such as bumps, black spots and pin hole reserves to both pieces, as well.

A very old teacup and saucer with much delicate hand work. It still has a bright blue and white look and will add to a collection or a display of blue and white.
