Featuring an enchanting blue and white design, this beautiful chawan mushi cup gives off the traditional feeling of most blue and white Chinese porcelain. On the cupís exterior is a repeating pattern of small star flowers growing on a short stem with two leaves. Each star flower is framed with a wavy blue brushstrokes border. The cap accentuates one star flower by placing it in the middle and framing it with a circle of two thin blue lines. The same wavy border surrounds and seperates six star flowers that are found around the singular star flower in the middle. The inside of the cup is entirely white, as is the bottom of the chawan mushi cup.
