A nice pair of 19th century Chinese famille rose wine cups. Each cup bears auspicious symbols, a pair of fish for prosperity and other objects from the scholar's study.

One cup has inside repair with hairline showing (see picture). Overglazed red marks of Tongzhi reign, 1862-1874, and of that period. ...
