Subject:Eggshell porcelain Chinese cup
Posted By: Martin Michels Wed, Nov 29, 2017 IP: 18.104.22.168
A couple of years ago I bought this Chinese cup.
It is the thinnest and lightest porcelain cup I have ever encountered. Even thinner than the Japanese eggshell porcelain cups in my collection.
The mark is Qianlong Nian Zhi, but I don't think it's from that period. It looks hand painted and the dragons have claws with 5 toes, as you can see.
Has anyone an idea about age or period?
Thanks in advance,
