This time, we bring you silver cups from the porcelain capital of the world: Jingdezhen, China. The porcelain from this region is especially high quality, being fired at 1300 degrees celsius. It has been the origin of the best quality porcelain since 1004 A.D.
Jingdezhen high-temperature porcelain with 999 silver handmade lining
Jingdezhen porcelain (Chinese: 景德镇陶瓷) is Chinese porcelain produced in or near Jingdezhen in southern China. From the Ming period, official kilns in Jingdezhen were controlled by the emperor, making imperial porcelain in large quantity for the court and the emperor to give as gifts.
Ancient works from the region are exhibited in many famous museums across the world.

After firing at a temperature above 1300 °C, Jingdezhen porcelain has vastly superior color, feel, and sound compared with medium and low-temperature porcelain.
It is also much denser and stronger compared with medium and low-temperature porcelain. it has low water absorption rate, is easy to clean and does not absorb odor, and does not cause surface cracking and water seepage.
Each porcelain silver cup contains about 3g of pure silver. This is a painstaking handmade process that starts with a blank sheet of silver that is molded and hand-ground into place.
The perfect combination of two materials
Each cup's glaze will have its own unique personality.
A modern piece of art.
Simple lines, elegant.
Carefully designed to be comfortable, practical and beautiful.
Not only does the .999 fine silver interior look stunning, it's also practical as an oligodynamic (germ-killing) surface.
Silver can soften the water and the tea will taste more mellow.
A warm cup of tea will always be there to jump-start your morning or calm down your afternoon.

They are a delight to look at. The reason that I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is simply that they are smaller than I thought they would be. I realise that they would be priced on size and I was surprised at how inexpensive they were.
Still, beautiful work.
These 4 cups have such extraordinary beauty; they are exquisite. My appreciation for such excellent craftsmanship. I am delighted with the products I see you are experts in, most skilled and imaginative, unusual. And will continue to browse your catalogue with interest.
