The double-eared jade cup used by Emperor Wanli (1573-1620) features handles shaped like a blooming morning glory and embellished with rubies. The cup's tray is silver-gilt, featuring a central lotus flower inlaid with sapphires, rubies, and pearls, surrounded by flowers symbolizing the four seasons, weighing 146 grams.

This exquisite double-eared jade cup and its tray reflect Wanli's aesthetic taste and the high level of royal craftsmanship of the time
