Beautiful in its simplicity, this glossy white teacup feels great in the hand. It is ‘just the right size’, neither too large nor too small, not too light or too heavy. A real Goldilocks of a teacup! A few horizontal ‘ridges’ on the cup’s outer wall serve as its main decoration and provide texture so that the cup does not ‘slip’ in the hand. With its stylish, contemporary good looks this cup will compliment most other teawares.
This cup is made of porcelain, which is a hard, fine-grained, nonporous ceramic. It is very white and extremely durable. Many consider porcelain to be the ideal material for steeping all types of tea. The cool white interior provides the perfect backdrop for appreciating the color of any tea liquor.
This is a handmade item – 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.
