REF No. 6566
Four Chinese porcelain blue and white teabowls and saucers with Wusong slaying a tiger
Kangxi period circa 1710
Diameter of saucers 3½ inches; 9cm
Price: £1,200 each
or £4,000 for the set of four
A set of four Chinese porcelain teabowls and saucers each with a man and a tiger in a landscape. These are small and of very fine eggshell porcelain.
Tigers are rare on Chinese porcelain, and this design probably refers to Wusong, a character from the Chinese literary work The Water Margin, who slew a tiger with his bare fists.
These are available as a set, pairs or singles. Please enquire.
