For Sale: Qing/ROC tea cups

by FBee » May 6th 19 2:29 am

Up for sale is something a little more rare... a set of five so called Douqing cups in varying condition from what is to the best of my knowledge, end of Qing/early ROC.

This is my favourite kind of old cup, I personally do not care for blue and white porcelain at all.

These turquoise kind of cups are getting more difficult to find these days, nonetheless I have a good stock of them now and decided to share the surplus.

Size varies among them, all in all standard tea cup size (you also find the same kind as tiny wine cups, which are too small for tea).

Two have hairlines. I do have a few cups with hairlines, cleaned them with boiling water and used them everyday, cracks have not become larger and no cups broke. But tread with care, they are antique after all,so no guarantees...

One has a deformation from the firing, see picture.

Otherwise as shown in the pictures with little dots and other signs of age and irregularity.

The set of five:
140$ +30 EMS shipping

As you are a new member I can not PN you so, any other way to contact you? (Instagram?):

As to your question:
Standard size means gong fu sized, so three cups per pot of tea.

The cups are too small for my measuring tools, what I can tell you is this:
If I use a 80ml teapot, that will fill three of the small cups (not to the brim, but a comfortable amount).
The same pot fills the two larger cups.

So my guess is large cup around 30+ml, small ones 20+ml.

Shipping is 30$ with EMS, next cheaper version is 15$, but that is slower and no tracking, etc. provided.

Hope that helps!
