A Soft-Paste Sèvres Porcelain Tea Service, circa 1770

This Sèvres Tea Service is set on a tray of the plateau losange à jour à anses shape also called a plateau losange à anses bâtons rompus.

The tray shape is remarkable for the large amount of piercing to its rim which required a large amount of patient time and skill in cutting and refining all the details.
