chinese porcelain mug
by: peter

Hello,
A modern Chinese mug, probably brand new.
The three characters near the handle seem to say "Xi You Ji", a fictious story from Chinese mythology/folklore that every Chinese knows.
This is confirmed by the figure beside the writing, which seems to be that of Sun Wo Kong, a monkey with human character, the hero in the story.

Cannot read the bottom mark as it is too small. But first two characters seem to say Zhongguo or Zhonghua (=both meaning China), and the last is Hai (=sea).
Hope this helps.
