Ming dynasty cups such as this are more and more difficult to find in this condition in the market. This cup is in excellent condition - no cracks and is of very high quality. The glaze is smooth and the shape is very refined.
There is a bit of missing clay from the original firing and the foot has a small chip (pictured above).
As with all objects of this age, please do expect some character and 'features'. This is handmade and hundreds of years old. We can say with confidence that the condition of this piece is excellent.
