Just so phenomenal!! We have three more wonderful cups and saucers that match the Old Paris set we have been listing these past few weeks. Just discovered them.
Each cup is about 4" wide by 3" tall with a gentle molding of eleven panels and a flaring rim, and a squared off , "Chinese" style handle. They sit up on a foot ring. At this time much of porcelain design was still showing strong influences of the Chinese styles that had been the rage 50 years before. But the decoration on these pieces is completely French. Incredibly beautiful pink blue and green colorations enhanced by very lavish gilding are most pleasing to the eye. Each saucer is 5.25" in diameter.
All in very good condition, with only minor gilding rub.
Thanks for looking. I hope you can Check out my other items !
