Hand-Painted Qing Hua Lotus Ya Shou Tea Cup

20.00

Lotus is considered a flower of purity and is a popular theme of Chinese paintings with endless renditions by artists.  This is a true Qing Hua, which means the painting was on naked clay with BLACK ink and the finished piece went through a high fire of over 1300C to achieve the blue color.  Because the paint is under the glaze, a true Qing Hua's color never fades.

Ya Shou means "weighty on hand", and is referring to the relative flat bottom of the tea cup.  it's one of the classic shapes for tea and wine cups.
