An 18th Century Sevres Porcelain Cup and Saucer, 1756. Decorated in Puce with Meandering Lose Garlands of Roses Intertwining a Ribbon. The Handel of Rococo Form. The Base with Interlaced L's for the Sevres Porcelain Factory and 'D' for 1756. The Top of the Sevres Mark has a Painter's Mark that I have not been Able to Identify.
Tea casket and caddies ca. 1770, British. Containing two canisters for tea (green and black) and a larger one for sugar, this chest could be locked to secure its valuable contents. The polychrome pastoral scenes and Italianate landscapes, combined with Rococo-style gilding against a pink ground, create an opulent effect.
