This is an original antique Chinese carved lacquer cup.

It measures 2.75 inches in diameter and about 4.2 inches wide (including the Fu Lion handles on either side of the cup.)

It stands about 2 inches tall (measured from top to bottom.)

It has two robed figures seated on clouds set out against a repeating pattern.

This cup dates to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) or, quite possibly, even a bit earlier.

It is in excellent condition except for a tiny loss of lacquer on the interior lip of the cup (see closeup photo).

This cup was part of a small collection of Chinese carved lacquer purchased about 25 years ago from a private collection established in the early 20th century.

This is one of two similar cups that were part of the original collection. The cups were not a matching pair, but are of a very similar style. We will be offering the other cup later on.
