A Pair of Soft-Paste St. Cloud Lidded Pots with silver mounts, 1744-50

The silver mounts have the décharge mark used in the years 1744-50.

Pots such as these were made for make-up powders and were provided with tight silver mounts so that insects could not invade and feed on the plant-based powder.

The style of low-relief ‘prunus’ decoration is based on similar decoration on white porcelain exported from China to Europe.

Each: Height 7 cm
Diameter 5.3cm
