A Sèvres Teapot, circa 1758-60

This Sèvres porcelain teapot (a théière Calabre) is decorated with turquoise-blue (bleu céleste) ribbons and flowers painted in natural colours.  On either side birds are painted in the reserves, depicted in natural settings and clearly attributable to Louis-Denis Armand l’aîné.

Factory marks in blue.  The lid appears to be a later replacement.
