Pomponne Chinois

The Pomponne Chinois is a special edition Pomponne designed for the Embassy of Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne of Hong Kong, China and Macau. Inspiration for the base and cup was found in antique Xia dynasty wine cups which are typically raised on three outward-bending legs and feature a distinct mouthpiece for drinking.

The body has a build similar to the Pomponne Nouveau with vines with grapes and wine leaves and has further been decorated with two curved brass dragons to symbolize good fortune.
