A sturdy and substantial, straight-sided classic tall teacup glazed a glossy midnight black and then decorated with a pattern of overlapping, shallowly-etched chrysanthemum blossoms that have been glazed over with a silver overcoat. The pedastal base is octagonal, shows white when you hold the cup, and offers a fun geometric contrast to the dominant botanical motif.
This is a cup that will serve well when used either as a vessel for tea with a meal, or for those wanting to linger over a cup of tea for a while without needing to refill it. It is hefty, durable and will hold heat well.
A Tea Trekker super good value cup!
