This gilt silver wine cup and saucer is decorated using various techniques. The cup is engraved with flowering prunus trees on a ring background and each features a pair of stylised dragon handles with some engraved lines. The eight-lobed saucer is decorated with water patterns, dragons or sea serpents, and fish executed in repoussé against a ring-matt background. It is bordered with a triangle-work diaper pattern.
