if that is the case and it is a japenese cup where abouts is the kiln it was made and what sort of age are we looking at. I really like this little cup it is one of my favourites and seems as if it is of some quality so the more info I can get on this little one the better. also what is the difference that you can see that makes this japanese and not chinese. does amybody else have any theories on this cup or some info to add??? cheers guys, I really appreciate your input and time. it is all a learning curv for me.

You could be right, Sal. I must say that I do not recognize this shape, especially the foot, as being Chinese.

is it Chinese?

The second lot of photos is of a small tea cup which has gold gilt painting and a deep blue to it. it has three characters in gold gilt around the top outer edge and a gold gilt painting of a plant.
Any info as to date and age, period, who and marks and what the characters read would be greatly appreciated. I was led to believe again that this could possibly be 17th more likely 18th century, but I will let you guys be the judge and get back to me on it

Thanks Nathan.
Will look for them. This forum system has a problem. Once the posts are around 500, the unanswered ones aren't moving to top for some reason. It will come up as soon as there is a comment.

Pictures should be taken in natural lighting, perhaps near a window, to allow for natural colors. Here the colors are too bright from artificial lighting. A bottom picture should always be added.
