4 litron cups and saucers
Painted hard porcelain, enhanced with gilding
Dimensions: D. 13 ; H. 6 (cm.)
Paris, circa 1795 - 1810

A delightful suite of four litron-shaped cups, the handle very slightly poly-lobed, with gilded friezes of lozenges of navette medallions containing radiating palmettes and a frieze of arabesques on a dark nankin background. The quality of the gold friezes and the use of the colour are similar to those produced by the Locré factory.

Hard porcelain in Paris in the early 19th century 
Unlike earthenware factories, porcelain factories flourished under the Empire, particularly in Paris. The period 1800-1820 can be considered the golden age of porcelain in Paris. There were nineteen porcelain factories in Paris in 1800, but only seven had been founded under the Ancien Régime: Dihl et Guérard, Houzel, Lemaire et Josse, Pouyat et Russinger, Schoelcher, Despréz et Nast, etc. In contrast to the last twenty years of the 18th century, which saw a shift from rocaille to antique simplicity, the first thirty years of the 19th century saw the opposite, a shift from antique sobriety to rococo.
