Teabowl and saucer. Hard-paste porcelain painted in turquoise, green, iron-red, pale yellow, aubergine, blue and black enamels. Each piece has a lobed, petal-shaped rim. The saucer has a central medallion enclosing a fan-shaped vignette of a flower vase on a garden terrace reserved against a pale yellow ground strewn with 'Hundred Antiques', encircled round the cavetto by leaf-shaped panels pendent from a narrow red zig-zag band round the rim. The teabowl (A) is decorated with fans and Emblems on the exterior and a ribboned lozenge mark on the interior. The base has two concentric circles in underglaze blue enclosing the mark.
