A Modern Copy of a Rare Daoguang Famille Rose Cup
This is a fine MODERN copy of a porcelain cup from the service made for a prince of Western Tumed who married a daughter of the Emperor Tao Kuang (Daoguang – 1821-1850). The mark reads, in Sanskrit, "Baragon Tumed." The cup measures 2 1/2"” high and is 3 1/4" diameter at the top and the raised foot is 1 3/4" diameter. The sides of the cup are decorated with a set of dignitaries, Buddhist wheels and a white horse and elephant between borders of shou characters alternating with the Eight Buddhist Precious Things - a red Sanskrit seal mark on the base. In cavetto we find a lovely stylized lotus blossom. The cup is in excellent condition with no chips or restorations. We date this copy to the early to mid 20th century. IT would make a fine study piece for collectors of Chinese famille rose.

The original pieces of this cup set record of market acceptance for Dauguang Famille Rose -an example from the set garnered an auction price of 960 GB ($1,750) at Sothebys, London, June 10, 2004 – Lot # 415 and described as “Famille-Rose BARAGON TUMED Sytle Bowl QING Dynasty, DAOGUANG PERIOD 800—1,200 GBP - Lot Sold.
