A Hard-Paste Sèvres Porcelain Cup with portrait of Louis XVI and later saucer, circa 1775

It is very rare to fine a piece of 18th century Sèvres porcelain painted with the French monarchs.  This cup has a large image of King Louis XVI painted in profile in a cameo-style monochrome manner over a coral-red background.

The original saucer must have been broken at some later time and replaced.
