Title

Cup and saucer (tasse à qustre pans ronds)

circa 1748-circa 1749


Artist

Vincennes

France

1740 - 1756


About

The four-lobed design derives from a Meissen model. The fact that the rim is gilded implies a date in or after 1748. The flower painting is of a style also deriving from Meissen which was used at Vincennes only in its early years. Imperfections in the form of dark specks in the paste are also evidence of a relatively early date.
