Chinese Export Porcelain Cup & Saucer Teacup Trio

Chinese Export Porcelain Cup & Saucer Teacup Trio

$0.00Price

A Chinese export porcelain set composed of a teacup, a coffee cup, and a saucer in the same pattern, circa 1810.

 

Each piece is bordered with an orange band within which is portrayed a genre scene of people at various activities. These involve a boy walking his dog, a woman flying a kite, and another man with a walking stick among local scenery. The band is edged in gold.

 

The saucer has a central vignette of trees and shrubs, a quiver of arrows, and two urns; one filled with flowers and the other surmounted by two birds.

 

There is also a gold band inside the rim and a gilt flower in the interior of the teacup.

 

A trio is how cups and saucers were often sold in the late 18th and early 19th century. Given that one wouldn’t drink tea and coffee simultaneously, a single saucer was all that was needed.

 

Saucer approximately 5” diameter.

 

Coffee cup approximately 2½” diameter.

 

Condition: Rubbing to gilding, otherwise in excellent condition consistent with age and usage.

Teacup approximately 3½” diameter.
