Description: The clay fine and exquisite, the glaze smooth with a moist appearance, the finishing meticulous. Rounded sides rising to a slightly flaring rim, finely hand painted to the exterior with rooster against garden landscape, between a washed-blue fine line border encircling the foot. The entire cup painted in an artless style further reflected in the six-character Reign mark in under glaze blue framed within double squares inscribed on the countersunk base, the immaculate porcelain body covered with a characteristic silky glaze, pooling on the base slightly veiling the mark. The cup displayed upon a carved wooden stand. Mark on base, a seal mark, of four blue script -KaiShu- characters enclosed by double frames, ChengHua Reign Period of Great Ming
