Latest Qing dynasty cups


I just got them 2 days ago. I didn't even wash them yet. Here are the 6 more Qing cups I found in my potter's collection.

C'est sans doute dû à une déformation professionnelle, mais qu'est-ce que ce magnifique papier sur lequel sont posées les tasses? Très joli agencement avec le bleu et blanc de la porcelaine.

J'ai une photo entière et un explicatif sur le lien ci-dessus.

Entre-temps, je l'ai montré à Teaparker et il m'a dit qu'il s'agit d'extraits d'un livre français sur le thé chinois (notamment pour les illustrations).

They are most beautiful. DO you collect or drink from them?

I drink from them. They add a sense of old culture and time gone to the gongfu cha experience.
Of course, I don't need so many myself. So these ones are for sale.

Dear Stephane,

Besides adding a sense of old culture, if the cups are an antiquity and one's sense of taste is sharp enough,the taste of the tea out of an antiquity cup is different and add a feeling of lightness and accentuated aroma & flavour to the tea. The sensation coming from that cup depends on the age and period of manufactured. Utilising antiquity cups and zisha teapots exudes another dimension towards the enjoyment of tea to another level. Of course all the more better with a revered and aged tea.
