Small Chinese blue-on-white porcelain cup on pedestal, rare design, ex-Hatcher. 81 grams, 2-3/4" tall and 2-1/2" across the top. This is just like the normal teacups you see from the wrecks of this period except with a 1"-tall pedestal for its base, first of its kind we have handled, with design on exterior only consisting of several trees (pine, bamboo and eucalyptus), the glaze somewhat matte and with very minor frits on rim but otherwise completely intact. Pedigreed to the Hatcher Collection, with original Christie's (Amsterdam) lot-stickers (June1984). Recovered from: Geldermalsen ("Nanking Cargo"), sunk in 1752 in the South China Sea
