It took four years and a special crew of 22 artisans to complete the one-of-its-kind Golden Lotus Cup - the largest monolithic porcelain cup in Vietnam, which has become one of national Guinness records in porcelain industry when Minh Long I Co., Ltd. participated in Vietnam's Porcelain Festival.
The artwork with its firm, balanced base and its narrowest part to be measured at 12 cm weighs 45 kg in total, is 90 cm in height and fired at 850 degrees Celsius. Its elaborate, modern lotus patterns are designed and painted 100% by hand. In addition, a pair of mystical dragon-like creatures holding pearls in their phoenix beaks to serve as the cup's handles was fired as an inseparable part of the main piece without glueing or screwing.
