A lonely cup made in France in the late 18th century. It used to be a pot de creme but is now missing its lid. This type of cup was used for hot chocolate or meat juices (like a strong broth) to drink. The paste of this piece is really nice and white and the hand painted blue corn flower decoration looks stunning on it especially with the gold trim to the edges and handle. It is in perfect condition with just some manufacturing flaws to the inside from when it was made in the shape of inclusions in the paste.
Blue cornflowers were a favorite of Marie Antoinette and thus became very popular during this time period. The piece is not marked underneath but is definitely French from this period! The cup is 2.125 inches tall and 2.125 inches in diameter. If you like my goodies have a look at my other auctions for a lot more top maker pieces like Frankenthal, Sevres and so on.
