Guest Book
A Chinese porcelain early 18th century large handleless cup with hand painted underglaze cobalt blue decoration. On the inside a saw tooth band is between faint blue lines located near the ruffled rim and a scene of an insect above a flower and grasses in the bottom. On the outside are stylized flowers in jars, in lower arches and rising above the arches between the jars. The foot is high. Height 2 inches (5 cm) and diameter 3 3/8 inches (8.5 cm).

Condition: No cracks or repairs. There are two small chips on the the rim, both with hairlines.

An almost modernistic and well executed design in good blue.
