Rare! Antique Meissen Royal Vienna Covered Soup & Saucer 1700's Provenance

From the estate of the Comte & Comtesse de Paris, a very rare and fine covered soup bowl with underplate. Both pieces date from the 17th Century, rare enough by virtue of their age alone. Add to this the quality of this ensemble as well as the provenance and you have an amazing prize! The covered soup is hand painted and gilt with floral bouquets. The finial is a very charming pear with leafy frond. The base has two formed gilt handles. The base is clearly marked with the Royal Vienna shield. The under plate, marked with the Meissen crossed swords, is as well hand painted and gilt with floral motifs. Condition of the soup is superb. The under plate has one hairline fracture and a couple of flakes on the raised rim on the base. A very fine addition to the finest collection!

Please see photos for dimensions and marks. The Comte & Comtesse de Paris would have been the King and Queen of France if the Royalists were still in power in France. They were the direct decedents of the last King of France, and not to be confused with the French Empire which Napoleon Bonaparte established.
