A Chinese famille rose figural cup. Yongzheng
Decorated in the famille rose palette, with an elegant lady with a fan seated a fine table with what appears to be an unfurled scroll that she has been contemplating, her attention diverted by what we assume to be her small son who is carrying a ruyi scepter, his presence dwarfed by being sandwiched between two large vases, all as a large cat looks bemusedly out at the viewer.
