An amusing Chinese ‘ Canton’ enamel cup, c. 1750, Qianlong Period. The quatrelobed cup well painted with a scene of two European gentleman relaxing in a garden – one drinking wine, the other smoking a pipe- whilst a third furtively sneaks away, having apparently stolen a jar. All within two copper rims.
