This is a wonderful hand-made and hot enamel painted porcelain gzhel teacup and saucer with a glamorous blue color schemed design on a pure white porcelain base. The teacup is a vase-shaped cup with marvelous intricate designs of the flowing blue rose as the centerpiece as each petal blooms outward forming a luscious look with small branches of delicate leaves that circle around the glamorous rose. The sides of the teacup are painted in a grid-like pattern trapping rose in between them. The handle is made in a classic shape with a rich blue outline on the edge for a glam like pop. The saucer also has a pure white porcelain base with a petal-like gradient pattern that circulates the saucer completely, with its almost circular shape. Coming near the middle of the saucer, there are thick and thin blue outlines that cover the middle to enhance the richness of the teacup and bring the attention towards it. This tea set is fully functional like an ordinary porcelain dish.
