Here is a neat sugar bowl in what has to be the most popular polychrome porcelain pattern ever created, also known as Angouleme sprig, French Sprig, etc. It stands five and three-quarters inches tall and was once part of a tea set. There are incised marks on the underside but hard to read: perhaps a fancy script number 2 with large loops? This came from a very fine Chicago collection where every piece had something special going for it. Much old Paris porcelain was unmarked, so the marks on this might give someone a head start on identifying the factory. No chips or damage, but the gilded rim of the lid shows some wear.
A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
