A wonderful little cream pitcher, creamer, not porcelain as you might imagine it, but in fine early 1800s French opaline glass, layered with a casement of that gorgeous green, then hand painted with a cartouche bouquet that is framed in with gold. Repeat of the heavy gold enamel work frames in the lip and covers the handle still. No damage at all to report - just a charming little breakfast tray addition, perhaps with flowers set into it rather than cream. Wonderful for a Bru or other antique doll house display, too. Measurements are noted on our photos.
Very good to excellent condition, no chips, no cracks, no flaws in the glass nor painting. You see the pontil's flare of green overlay on the white opaline, turning it over to view the bottom. This is a wonderful antique glass item, definitely not porcelain. Palais Royal? Quite likely came from those boutiques - quality is wonderful. Napoleon III era or slightly before.
