Subject:Small cup impressed base mark

Any information about this small cup would be appreciated. There is an impressed base mark.

Your little tea cup is probably from a teaset that contained four other cups and a teapot.

The mark on the base reads 中國宜興. ZhongGuo means China, the country. YiXing is an area of China famous for its rare clay and its industry of making teapots and other tea ware.
