A Soft-Paste Sèvres Porcelain Cup and Saucer, circa 1777-79 

This gobelet Litron et soucoupe of the second size has a very unusual scheme of decoration with strawberries, roses and foliate wreaths.

Painted by Raux l’aîné who in 1777 is recorded in the manufactory’s documents as painting six cup and saucers of this size with ‘bordures nouvelles‘ – perhaps something like this.

Height 6.8cm
