A Sèvres Porcelain Cup & Saucer, 1768

This soft-paste porcelain gobelet litron et soucoupe of the 3rd size is painted in imitation of silk textiles of the period. It is interesting to see the pattern painted across the saucer rather than in a radial arrangement.
With the factory marks, date letter P for 1768 and the painter’s mark x for Jacques-François Micaud.

H of Cup 6cm
Diam of Saucer 12.5cm
