Tibetan Silver Teacup Stand and Lid
In addition to their notorious butter tea, Tibetans are also very fond of jasmine tea, which they serve in porcelain cups. A silver stand and cover like this make for a most elegant service for a special guest.

The cup we are showing with the stand and lid is just a stand-in, and we don't own a cup of just the right proportions. We are selling only the silver stand and cover. As can be seen in the photo, this cover is too small for the cup. It should overhang he cup by a fraction of an inch.

If purchasing the set for use, be mindful of the dimensions. The cover is 4-1/8 inches in diameter and the flange for holding the cup is 1-5/8 inches wide and 1/2 inch high. the cup can rest either inside or outside the flange, but if it is outside be careful to not the 1/2 inch flange. The stand is 3 inches high and the cover is 2-3/4 inches. The finial is a green jade bead.
