In good condition
A beautiful Chinese cup and saucer with a refined decoration. The saucer is decorated with an identical decoration of a house in a rocky landscape. Surrounded by water, which is rendered with horizontal lines in different colour depths. Framed by a geometric border. The cup has similar decorations with a geometric border on the inside and a small decoration on the bottom.
The cup and saucer are from the world-famous wreck of the V.O.C. ship the 'Geldermalsen', better known as the Nanking Cargo, one of the largest porcelain auctions ever at Christie's. The ship Geldermalsen was bound for Holland with a cargo of porcelain from the imperial ovens of Jingdezhen, but hit a reef and sank in the South China Sea near Nanking, in 1752.
Collection stickers: Stickers on the bottom of the cup and saucer, marked 'The Nanking Cargo Christie's, lot number 5104'.
Condition: Both have small flea bites. Other than that, both pieces are pristine. The cup might have a sliver on the foot-rim, but that presumably came about during the firing process.
Diameter of saucer: 10.1 cm.
Diameter of cup: 6.3 cm.
