Lovely Asian-style, porcelain cup or mug glazed in gorgeous celadon green that also seems like celadon blue color hand-cast from hand-carved mold of Buddha relief art.  This majestic cup measures 3.25 inches in diameter by 4 inches high.  8 ounce cup.

Celadon color is the name for the shade of green glaze used on the porcelain.  There are a few theories as to the origin of the term.  1)  It is a French term from the 1600's given in favor of a shepherd of the same name who wore ribbons that were pale green in a book called L'Astrée (1627).  2)  The term comes from a Ayyubid sultan who sent 40 pieces of pale green ceramic to another sultan in Syria in 1171.  3)  There is a Sanskrit term, sila-dhara, which means green stone.
