Cup with gold glaze
This finely modelled cup is marked on the base with a six-character underglaze blue reign mark of the Yongzheng period. The Yongzheng emperor ordered many porcelains in experimental colours from the imperial kilns at Jingdezhen. However, it is possible that the gold glaze here was later added.
