Cultural Revolution Enamel Cup

This cup is a fine example of Cultural Revolution slogans along with an idyllic scene.

The slogan is, "The Sky and Sea are Endless; Everyone Will Make Full Use of Their Talent to Achieve ". The graphics are equal to the slogan with vast fields using mechanized implements and evidence of greatness in the background - hydro dams and growing cities.

The cup is 9cm (3.5 inches) high and 9.5cm (3.75 inches) in diameter. According to the production information on the bottom of the cup, it was made by the Beijing Commodity Ceramics Factory and although difficult to see clearly, appears to show date of November 1974.
