Superb cup made by Meissen in about 1740. It is hand painted in the Kakiemon style with flowering chrysanthemum branches growing out of some rocks with a yellow Phoenix in flight inside the cup and a red design to the handle. Nice brown trim to the edge. Kakiemon colors of this period are some of my favorites and this is one superb design!The cup is in perfect condition with some minor wear to the brown trim. Sadly I do not have the saucer but I'll find it eventually maybe : The piece is marked underneath with the crossed swords mark as shown as well as an impressed number.
