Each cup has Magnolia Flowers as a centerpiece, the flowers are in the process of unfurling. There are buds leaves and vines. All carved crisply and well. In their fitted box: the flowers, buds and the leaves of the cups should be seen as facing out, not facing in. Each cup has the same theme. The cups are in excellent condition. This is a late Ming early Qing set. This zitan paper weight (zhenchi) is a strong piece of zitan, carved to look like a bamboo stalk. It is early Qing, the patina is very strong, the paper weight looks like it is encased by glass. A beautiful piece for the Scholar's table.
