This fully hand made Jingdezhen porcelain tea set includes one gaiwan and 4 cups. The large gaiwan is hand painted in "qing hua" (blue and white) with twisting, flowering vines. The striking conical, shallow cups are hand painted in a matching design. The non-reactive porcelain is fine and lustrous, thin and translucent in the light. To complete the the form and painting of each fully hand made piece in a set like this, it requires the work of many different specialized craftsmen over about two weeks.
