Tea Cup Set, Hence No.3

tea cup set | porcelain


This 1960s traditional-style tea cup set comes with a cup and a saucer. They are made of Jingdezhen Linglong porcelain. This style of cup set was specifically exported by China to other parts of the world to share its fine wares during the 1960s.

Linglong porcelain is a treasure of the ancient ceramic arts. During the engraving process on the porcelain body, many regular “exquisite eyes” are carved out. After being fired with glaze, these holes then become translucent and bright, a beautiful feature called “glass-stamped porcelain.”

Because the original meaning of “Linglong” is dexterity and clarity, it is very accurate to call this kind of porcelain Linglong. Linglong porcelain also has a long history: it is one of the four famous traditional porcelains in Jingdezhen. Linglong porcelain is often matched with blue and white patterns; called “blue-and-white exquisite porcelain.” This kind of porcelain displays the fine art of Chinese carving. It is simple and fresh.  Combining superb firing skills and exquisite artistry, Linglong porcelain fully reflects the ingenuity and creativity of the ancients.

This cup is not only good for serving your daily tea, but also for personal collection and home decoration.

Jingdezhen is known as China’s “Porcelain Capital.” It has been producing high-quality Chinese porcelain ceramics for more than 1,000 years.

From the Ming period onwards, the emperor controlled all the official kilns in Jingdezhen. These official kilns made imperial porcelain for the court in large quantities, and the emperor gave the Jingdezhen porcelain as gifts.  


Porcelain originated in China during the Shang Dynasty nearly 4,000 years ago. There are many types of porcelain teawares, including white porcelain, black porcelain, and blue porcelain.
