Found this beautiful little cup the other day. It only measures 3" wide x 2" high. It's thin and very delicate. It has a gilt rim which is a bit worn but mostly there. There is a slight dip in the rim and it thins out in one spot probably to form a drinking edge. There are the rice grain leaves around the flowers that let the light shine through. The mark on the bottom seems complex for such a tiny piece. I haven't had any luck with the translation.  Thanks for any help :) -Mike-
