This is a very nice cup. This "Deer" painting style (Chang Shou Lu), symbolising long life, is especially rare to come acorss. This is our first time to sell one of these cups in more than 12 years. Apart from one small frit in the surface of the glaze at the rim (pictured) this is in perfect condition, with no other chips or cracks.
As with all antique porcelain of this period, these were handmade and wood fired. Please expect some character as would be normal from pieces of this period
