Description: These small, straight line border cups probably were used for many purposes: custard, sauces, soup, garnishes, condiments, berries. They are interesting as they have flat unglazed bottoms, flared rims and a complete Canton scene around their outsides. They are made of thin porcelain and the sides are translucent.
The two pictured here are the only ones we have personally seen and we consider them very rare. Herbert Schiffer does picture one on page 86 of his 1975 book and calls it a “berry bowl”.
