This is a truly fine piece of late 18th to early 19th Century porcelain tea bowl and saucer. It has the Imperial Chinese Kangxi (1662-1722) marks on each piece. However, the calligraphy isn't quite right and the painting style looks Japanese. I think that this is a Japanese copy of Chinese Qianlong (1736-95) porcelain with imitation Kangxi Imperial Marks. The work is masterful and worthy of any serious collection. The design is very similar to a Chinese Export tea service displayed in the Master Bed room at George Washington's Mount Vernon. The price is for one cup and saucer. I have six available. The tea bowl measures 2 7/8" at the rim by 1.75" high. The deep saucer measures 4.75" diameter by 1" high. Condition is perfect, except for some wear to the gold on the rim. There are no chips, cracks, crazing or repairs.
