Subject:Two Blue & White Porcelain Cups Need To Know If Japanese Or Chinese.
Posted By: Gary Knudtzon Wed, Oct 04, 2017 IP: 97.126.97.148

Thanks Again for the Bottom Signature Translation!! Now I need to know if these Cups are Chinese or Japanese. There are Plenty of Writing on both cups so I have the Writing Pictured for your Viewing. I seem to not be able to get my Pictures to be Upright so hopefully you can still read them. Really Always Highly Appreciate all of your Expert Help!! Sincerely, Gary K

The cups are Chinese,
The text looks like a citation from a scholar or poet.
The first three lines read,
茶之興味自唐陸羽  
始今下天無貴賤不
可一响不啜茶且其
The interest towards tea began with Lu Yu in Tang Dynasty.
Today, wealthy and poor alike do not miss a noon not to sip a tea.......
( Lu Yu (733-804), was the author of The Classic
of Tea (茶經))

With regards,
I.Nagy
