Product Description

This lovely Tea Cup is painted with the traditional Dragon & Phoenix Design and has a 35cc capacity.

In ancient China, the dragon (lóng or ) paired with the phoenix (fènghuánɡ 鳳凰 or 凤凰) symbolized a husband and wife. If the dragon had five claws (toes), then this pairing was also a symbol for the Chinese Emperor and Empress. The pairing of these two creatures can also symbolize the animal and bird kingdoms, or the entire natural world (Taoism). The dragon here clearly has five toes, so it is the Emperor.

Volume: 35cc

Height: 3.5 cm; Width: 6.3 cm

Set of two cups. Price is for individual teacup.

  • there's a story here

    but I don't know what it is. Dragon, Phoenix and some other little red critter on the cup--everyone asks "what is it?" Anyone know? Meanwhile the cups are beautiful and just the right size for tea sampling.
