Gilt Silver Teacup

Pictures below are the gilt silver teacup with a cover and stand from my collection. It is believed to be used during the tea ceremony at the Chinese or Peranakan wedding where the bridal couple offered tea as a gesture of respectful homage to their elders.

Height : 8.5cm, Diameter : 9.5cm
