    found it this weekend
    i've got no knowldege at all but had a look throught the web
    and saw similar decorated pieces... could it be from circa 1880-1900?
    i actually use it for my daily espresso macchiato doppio's and they taste great out of it...
    could it be by Bin Mao in the ji chou year (1899) as says?

      Cross cultural use! Great - but I would go for a ristretto!

      Monkey your ceramic collection is unreal! So many gems.

      Never seen this sort of motif before, but yours look old. Should be nice.

      thanks for all the loves and your comments
      i use 14gr espresso powder twice
      therefore it is more likely a ristretto macchiato...
      (in the moment a smooth sidamo certainly grinded on demand)

      no this is most likely better this is or late tongzhi or early guanghu, i think Bin Mao is committed to , calligraphic are not good for value and the porcelain was getting worse well done congrats ( and this is a good design)

      believeme this good enough , the birds are known, combined with a tongzhi run out mark
