  • Details
    These vintage sets of 4 china & clay sipping cups came to me as part of a quantity of beautiful items that once belonged to a couple who ran a high end Chinese restaurant. The restaurant included a tea station where the owners and the staff hosted formal tea ceremonies and tastings. I suspect these cups may have been used in connection with these beautiful cultural tea practices.

    These cups are mixed materials -- natural red clay on the outside, and white porcelain on the inside. The outside clay has been painted with chinese writing and symbols in red and black.

    All the cups measure approximately 1 3/4"w at the top and 1 1/4"h, but there are some slight variations among them. All are in excellent vintage condition. They stack very compactly for having on hand for many kinds of beverage tasting/sipping events. They are great for your use or to give as a thoughtful gift.

    Each set of 4 cups is $10.00, and there are 4 sets available at time of listing. Use the toggle at the top right of the listing to select the number of sets you would like to order.
