A very nicely painted delicate porcelain cup, saucer and cup cover painted predominantly with carp but including a lobster and a couple of fish. All three pieces have elaborate painted borders. Gilding is used on the carp and the borders. The two handled cup is marked in red with a stamp, “CHINA” inside an oval. This mark seems to have been predominantly used in the first part of the 20th century. The saucer is 5 ¼ inches (13 cm) diameter. The cup across the handles is 4 ¾ inches (12 cm) and 1 ¾ inches (4.5 cm) tall. The cover with a loop handle is 3 ½ inches (9 cm) diameter.

Condition: no chips cracks hairlines or repairs. Minor gilding wear.

A very nicely executed and colorful set which was presumably used for fish soup
