We all love this cup! Beautiful in its simplicity, this pearly white teacup with delicate flecking and a slightly textured finish feels great in the hand. No matter what type of tea is poured into this cup, the liquid will shine and its appearance will be enticing.
At 4.5 oz, the size is perfect for green tea and oolongs that are re-steeped and provide numerous refills.
If you were to set this cup down on a beach, someone might pick it up thinking it was either a rock or shell, that is how natural-looking it is. The cup has no ‘foot’ per se, and there is no contrast between the body of the cup and the bottom of the cup, the glaze is continuous throughout the smooth transition. This cup would also serve well as a dessert cup for everything from pot de creme to fruit salad to green tea sorbet.
This is a handmade item – slight variations in the painting, colors, tooling, patterning and kiln effects of Chinese and Japanese tea wares are to be expected. We have carefully photographed this item as best as possible – please be aware that different device screens can render colors and subtle tones slightly differently.
