Antique Old Paris Porcelain Tea Cup & Saucer hand painted with a beautiful and very decorative portrait, on a stunning and very rare to find apple green Sevres background. From an old chateau estate in Europe, these most likely date to the very early 1800's. The cup has a stunning original portrait of a lady, delicately and expertly painted by the most accomplished painters of the era. Completely hand decorated, the saucer features a hand applied gilt trim and center.

Collectors the world over, and particularly in the Deep South, prize this "Old Paris" or "Vieux Paris" porcelain. The incredible quality of this cup is indicative of the factories and artisans around Paris from the mid 1700's to the end of the second empire. Unmarked { it is estimated that around 70% of production in this era had no identifying marks at all} this is an original work of art. A once-in-a-lifetime addition to your collection. Has a fleabite to the rim, the tip of the handle on bottom has come off and has been painted in, and some wear to the gilding.

  • Measures: Cup 3-3/8" x 4-1/8" x 2-1/4"h.;Saucer 5".
