    Miniature cup and saucer
    Hard porcelain painted and enhanced with gilding
    Dimensions: H. 4.3; D. 9.2 (cm.)
    Paris, around 1790 - 1800

    Rare miniature litron-shaped cup and its saucer in hard porcelain painted with frieze drapes in pistachio shades and gold friezes in foliage. This decor is typical of the Directory, hence the dating from the last decade of the 18th century. This type of piece is called “orange blossom” in Sèvres. This liquid was indeed to be consumed in very small quantities.
