This mini porcelain cup has a surface not unlike a beautiful watercolor. There are layers of teal, outlines of steely blue and white, a golden flax yellow, and a red that is has touches of a rose and deep coral. It is a very intense glazing technique using colored slips The cup sits on three points and is handmade and embossed. It is truely one-of-a-kind. It measures not quite 4" high and is 2" in diameter. I've photographed it all the way around as you move from one photograph to the next, so you can see all sides. This is a small treasure!
