A very unusual 18th century Chinese export porcelain coffee cup & saucer, decorated with a rich underglaze blue ground, swags of hand painted European style flowers and gilding.
*This bowl and two other pieces available were probably made in imitation or as replacements for 18th century Italian porcelain from Capodimonte. It doesn’t show well in the photos but the blue ground is actually on a raised moulded section of the porcelain.
Date : circa 1780
Diameter of saucer : 5⅜” (13.7cm)
Condition : Good, slight wear to gilding. No damage or restoration.
