A sturdy and substantial, straight-sided classic tall teacup decorated with a flurry of cherry blossom flowers and petals and glazed in a lovely pale pink. Each petal and blossom outline is rendered in a glossy white glaze and is slightly raised. There is a subtle pearlescent shimmer to the cup’s pink background color. The cup’s octagonal pedestal base is glazed in a rich brick red and offers a fun contrast both in shape and color to the dominant botanical motif.
This is a cup that will serve well when used either as a vessel for tea with a meal, or for those wanting to linger over a cup of tea for a while without needing to refill it. It is hefty, durable and will hold heat well.
Slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
