This cup is unique, meaning there is only one of its kind available.  

The technique of Jianzhan was invented in the Song Dynasty and later spread to Japan.  For a long time, this glaze was a lost art in China, until the 1990's, when it was returned by Japan, where the art had been preserved.  This iron-rich glaze is said to benefit the blood and improve the flavor of the tea, and gives this cup a pleasant weight.  

There is a saying about Jianzhan: "One glaze, a thousand colors."  While this royal blue cup is luminous and vibrant when empty, the addition of tea will bring out its full range of its colors.
