Pair of Chinese Export Pot de Creme circa 1790.
Fine pair of pot de creme, covered handled rounded mugs used for serving syllabub or other drinks.
These are painted in blue, orange/red and gold, with gilt monograms. The cups have lovely acorn finials and finely intertwined handles with leaf attachments.
Both cups have the shop sticker of Elinor Gordon, the legendary dealer who literally wrote the book on Collecting Chinese Export Porcelain.
Excellent overall condition with hairlines in the bottom that go about 1/2" up the side and rubbing to the gilt on the rims and finials.
The cups measure 2 3/8" diameter at the rim, and about 3 1/2" high including the covers. The covers vary slightly in size.
