Circa 1880 Chinese Export Egg Cup. The pattern on this famille rose egg cup is CANTON. It is basically rose canton and not rose medallion as there are alternating panels but it has no people on the decoration. It has the rose canton on one side and what appears to be 1000 butterfly on the other side. The butterfly has the nice black and yellow colors. along with blue.
