This cover is fully hand-painted using the blue and white underglaze technology. It is an essential item for many people when brewing tea. It is used to hold teapot lids, Gaiwan lids, and cup lids. It not only keeps the lids of the teaware clean but also prevents them from wetting the tabletop.
The Wan-Hua design, also known as “myriad flowers,” “flowers on top of flowers,” or “adding flowers to enhance beauty,” is commonly depicted in the central area of the object. It often features large patterns of peonies, surrounded by various smaller floral patterns such as chrysanthemums, camellia, roses, lotuses, lilies, morning glories, and others. The intricate secondary patterns cover the entire surface, symbolizing the gathering of myriad flowers and representing prosperity and harmony.
In this lid saucer, the delicate brushstrokes vividly outline the different flowers, creating a glossy and elegant appearance. The colours are rich and vibrant, giving the piece a sense of vivid and liveliness.
Note: All are fully handmade, and every lid saucer can be slightly different.
