Paris porcelain, pair of cups and saucers, late Empire or Restoration period

Painted and gilded hard porcelain
Dimensions : H. 12 for the cup ! (cm.) 
Paris, circa 1810-1820

The last picture shows them with a 27cm vase.

These cups and their saucers are decorated with a rich coloured frieze of acanthus, scrolls and poly-lobed motifs. The porcelain is finely enhanced with gilding. The handle of the cup is subtly shaped like an anthropomorphic crescent moon. The shade of purple used is still very vivid!

Hard porcelain in Paris in the early 19th century
In contrast to the faience factories, porcelain factories flourished under the Empire, particularly in Paris. The period 1800-1820 can be considered as the golden age of porcelain in Paris. There were nineteen manufactures in Paris in 1800, but only seven of them were founded during the Ancien Régime: Dihl and Guérard, Houzel, Lemaire and Josse, Pouyat and Russinger, Schoelcher, Despréz and Nast.
In contrast to the period of the last twenty years of the 18th century, marked by the transition from rocaille to antique simplicity, the first thirty years of the 19th century saw the opposite, evolving from antique sobriety to rococo.
