Two Famille Rose teacups and saucers

This set consisting of two matching Chinese teacups and saucers is decorated in the Famille Rose palette. The decoration consist of the peony and rock pattern, albeit with some interesting additional polychrome flowers. The rims of the saucers and the interior rims of the cups are decorated with four small flower cartouches reserved on a light blue ornamental band. This set is made out of thin translucent porcelain. The quality of the decoration and the enamels is excellent, with especially the finely detailed flowers being notable. This set dates from the reign of the Chinese emperor Yongzheng (1723-1735), or just thereafter. The diameter of the saucers is 4.25 inches (almost 11 cm) and the height of the cup is almost 1.5 inches (3.5 cm).

Excellent, with all pieces having some wear to the enameled highlights. Otherwise, one cup and saucer are in perfect condition, one saucer has some small chips to the rim and the remaining cup has an almost invisible 0.75-inch stress fracture as well as some fritting to the rim.

Yongzheng or early Qianlong, circa 1740.

Price $435 (entire set)
