Enamel paint is a decorative method that China transplanted towards porcelain crafts following its introduction from abroad. It is a unique method in that it mixes rich colors, embellishing and furthering the beauty of the porcelain. This gaiwan is decorated with enamel-painted flowers representing prosperity. The color of the glaze is full and even, while the three-dimensional patterns can be felt at a touch.
The cup comes in two different shapes - bamboo hat and octagon - and both come with a tea tray, convex in the center to securely hold the base of the cup. The bright white inner wall, the various flowers along the outer surfaces, and the gold rim along the cup’s lip all come together to make this cup beautiful and remarkable, especially when paired with the same gaiwan.
The cup is delicate with smooth inner wall.
Jingdezhen is a famous city of porcelain crafts due to its long history of the art since the Han Dynasty - and since the Yuan Dynasty when it began producing imperial porcelain for the royal court. Jingdezhen’s porcelain crafts are noted for their beautiful shape, wide variety, rich decoration, and unique style, and are often characterized by the saying “white as jade, bright as a mirror, thin as paper, sound of a chime”. The four traditionally-recognized types of Jingdezhen porcelain are: blue and white; rice-pattern; famille rose; and color-glazed.
