A Chinese export coffee cup, attractively decorated in a grisaille pallete of fine black line with iron red and gilding, and dating from the Qianlong period. The cup is decorated with a scene of a farmer tending two cattle (one coloured in fine black line and the other in fine red line) in a landscape with a tree, in the branches of which a bird is perched. Beneath the rim there is a European-style 'du Paquier' border in black line and gilding. Height 6.4cm (2.5").
Dating: Qianlong c 1750-60
Condition: This cup is in excellent, undamaged condition. As can be appreciated from our photos the enamels are in very good condition, with only some rubbing to the gilding.
