This cup's wide, placid surface forms a pond in the drinker's hand, replete with a hand-painted lotus and—look!—a swimming carp, moulded in relief on the bottom. It's something of a big sister to our Carp in Pond Teacup
, featuring a larger width and greater capacity, in addition to the lotus motif. Its elegantly-curved profile and tawny brown rims make it a pleasure to behold as well as comfortable in the hand. And should you choose to acquire several in homage to our nearby "land of a thousand lakes", Mecklenburg, the fish are indeed tame enough to allow stacking during storage.
