In the Qing dynasty (1644–1911), luxury items became more affordable to larger parts of the society, including women, merchants, and literati in non-official positions. Imperial patronage and a growing urban population encouraged consumption of luxury goods and local craftmanship. This wine cup has a coral glaze on outside and a transparent glaze of white eggshell porcelain on the inside. It exemplifies Qing dynasty accomplishments in porcelain techniques and the creative mind of talented artisans who sought clients on a competitive market.
