The phoenix is a highly important symbol of imperial power in Chinese art and culture, and was often used in antiquity to represent the empress. Painted in detail over a base of high-quality Jingdezhen suet jade porcelain, this teacup is a finely handcrafted work of art in a classic style. A ring of gold paint loops the cup’s raised foot for a subtle touch of extra refinement.
