This is another beautiful example of a Chinese Export pot de creme cup. The Chinese had such mastery of glazes. This cup and lid are decorated with butterflies (on the lid) and a scene of two women on the body of the cup. The colors used are brilliant shades of orange, pink, green and blue. The final on the cup lid is tinted with gold.
The handle on this pot de creme cup is the traditional twisted branch style. The handle is also decorated with gold trim. The pot de creme was produced in the 1800's for the European market.
The cup lid does have one small chip on the edge but that is a minor distraction to a collector of Chinese Export. The dimensions of the cup are about 3 3/4" wide including the handle by 3 1/2" high to the top of the finial on the lid.
