Jingdezhen Blue and White Porcelain Wood-fired Dragon and Cloud Tea Cup

 
Highlights

From Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of the world, this tea cup is artistically handmade,  painted and wood-fired. Wood-firing is the hottest trend in porcelain work and restricted by the Chinese government for environmental concerns. Wood-fired porcelain has great radiance and produces a creamy-smooth glaze that demonstrates the high quality of the authentic clay. 

Dragons are traditionally featured in tea ware and other porcelains and paintings during the ancient dynasties. This tea cup has meticulously detailed well-painted dragons both on the inside and outside of the cup, even down to the dragon's scales.  When the tea liquor fills the cup, the dragon at the bottom of the cup becomes even more strikingly vivid. Simply beautiful and unique, it will surely add a dramatic flair to your tea ware collection. 

 Capacity: 120ml
