The Qinghua teacup is made by fanggu clay (仿古泥) in Jingdezhen, which then turns subtle blueish-white after being fired under 1280℃-1300℃, feeling comfortable in the hands. It features a fine handpainted blue-red scene depicting a spectacular river and its surrounding. In comparison with normal qinghua porcelains, the teacup is stunning with the underglaze red whose color is not easy to come out and retain on the porcelain under the high temperature without right and experienced treatment.Furthermore , the teacup is painted throughout the whole body on the outside, offering a wide panoramic view of a river and mountains that manifests how much time and patience were incorporated to work on it.
The teacup holds approximately 100 ml of liquid, making it ideal for an intimate tea session exclusive of a fair cup if you just want to simplify the session when you are more focusing on other things. As the rim is pinched out slightly, the teacup offers pleasure to hold and prevent the fingers from the heat.
