A rare and lovely porcelain gaiwan from Jingdezhen, the birthplace of fine porcelain. This gaiwan is delicately handpainted with butterflies, gourds, and flowers. It is so fine that parts of the butterfly wings are actually completely transparent, a difficult technique that is beautifully executed in this piece as you can see in the photos below. We've had this gaiwan in our collection for many years and have just made it available. It is truly a collector's item.

3"H x 3.75"W including saucer and lid.
