Cup

The cup is complete. It is cylindrical in shape. The wall is flared at the top, the rim is straight and the top is corrugated. The cup rests on a ring-shaped foot, with a beveled outer rim. The bottom is recessed and flat. The bottom glaze, near its junction with the foot, has been wiped clean. The cup has a vertical ear-shaped handle, folded down at the ends; its cross-section is oval. The decoration is molded, transfer printed and hand-painted; it is blue with gilding and a floral motif. The molded decoration is visible on the outer wall, and perceptible on the inner wall; it consists of twisted vertical flutes, from the foot to the rim. The painted decoration is located below the inner rim; it consists of a wide horizontal band painted dark blue, with two alternating motifs painted in gold: a sloping leafy stem and a pearl. The perimeter of the band, as well as the top of the object’s rim, are outlined in gold. The printed decoration is visible on the outer wall, and comprises two motifs. The main motif consists of three flower corollas, whose stems and leaves have been painted in gold. The other motif, above the main one, is a horizontal chain of pearls encircled in gold and linked by an elongated, gold-painted trifoliate motif. A gold fillet adorns the outer perimeter of the foot. A plant motif has been painted in gold on the outside of the handle, and triangles made of superimposed lines have been painted on its ends.
