John Wedge Wood (not the more famous Josiah Wedgwood) produced the the Chapoo flow blue pattern circa 1841-1860. Chapoo now written as Zhapu, is a city in China famous as the site of the Battle of Chapoo during the First Opium War in 1842. The cup is in fine condition with no cracks or chips. Note there is no saucer. The cup is 2 1/2" tall with a 4" diameter at the mouth of the cup. There is overall crazing but no staining and there are areas of glaze was skipped along the rim. These blemishes are minor and commensurate with age. These are some on the finer examples of early flow blue cups we have had in stock. It is not marked on the bottom but we have handled this pattern frequently. The iconic temple to the right of a tree with three figures to the left side under the tree is a main design element of this pattern. The price is for one and you can buy up to the number remaining.
