These elegant and classy teacups are the original works of a prominent porcelain producer in Jingdezhen, the world capital of porcelain. These cups are formed into a traditional bell-shaped cup incorporating authentic Jingdezhen clay and are delicately hand painted.
Doucai is a type of porcelain decorating style that attained significant influence through the Ming and Qing dynasty. This cup uses a range of colors including olive green, peacock blue, deep green, peach, and yellow to paint a vivid image of playful birds on bamboo branches in springtime. See the detail of the pictures. The bird's eyes and feathers, and the color and composition of the painting exhibit high-level artwork and painting skills. Bamboo and birds are popular subjects in Chinese art and poetry. A famous poet Su Dongpo (苏东坡) of the Song dynasty once wrote "Tea and bamboo shoots sacrament the flavor of Zen."
Fine porcelain can enhance the flavor of the tea. Beautiful to behold and pleasing to the eyes, these cups present elegantly on any tea table.
