Gaiwan Cup - Blue Peony Flower
This traditional porcelain Gaiwan features blue peony flowers and butterflies painted on the body and lid, and calligraphic characters next to the butterfly meaning "wealth & prosperity when the flower blooms." Gaiwan, translated to lidded bowl, consists of a saucer, cup, and lid. Capacity 4.25 fl oz. Each of the individual components serves a purpose: the saucer allows you to hold a cup of hot tea; the cup allows you to brew and drink tea; the lid allows you to push aside floating tea leaves on the surface of the cup for easy tea enjoyment.
