This porcelain tea bowl was produced in Germany at the Meissen Porcelain Manufactor between 1730 and 1740. The marking is underglaze crossed swords, first quality. It is 3 inches in diameter and 2 inches high. The hand painted decoration inside the cup is in the Batavia Chinese export style. The painting is done in cobalt blue paint on a white ground. There is a wide band of porcelain on the inside that has ribbed texture. The outside of the cup is colored chocolate brown. Condition: There is a chip on the rim with a hairline crack connected to it about 1 1/2 inches. It is barely visible on the inside of the cup. This is such a rare, early example of Meissen that some exceptions can be made for its condition.
