C. 1770 CHINESE EXPORT BLUE/WHITE MANDARIN

Circa 1775 Chinese Export Blue and White Mandarin cup and saucer. Both the cup and saucer have a scalloped ridged side with the saucer having a very nicely painted mandarin scene on the bottom of the saucer where the cup sets on. The cup has also a nicely painted blue mandarin scene on the outside of the cup. The saucer measures 4 3/4" in diameter and the cup opening measures 2 7/8" in diameter. The cup is 1 3/4" in height. There are a few tiny nicks around the cup and the saucer is perfect. This was probably made for the english or european market.
