Fish & Lotus - Cup & Saucer Set
This cup and saucer set is beautifully hand-painted with a blue-on-white lotus and fish design. The porcelain is fired first at 800 C and painted with blue, then fired again at 1,300 C, an over-glaze, so the painting is protected below the second clear glazing. The lotus flower buds on the cup represent purity, and the small fish on the saucer signify freedom, like a fish swimming freely through the water. The cup and saucer sets are durable yet light and well balanced.
