A pair of Chinese Canton enamelled shaped cups with jade belt hooks used as their handles. They are decorated with flowers, leaves etc against a yellow and a blue ground. The jades which are celadon in colour are each carved with a dragon's head and a button ( encased in metal supports) on the underneath. They are interesting and unusual.age: late 19 C. size: 4 7/8inches ( 15cm) long. condition: good, wear consistent with age, no major problem, one of the bell-shaped supports is a little loose from the button.
