Here is a wonderful example of Copenhagen porcelain in superb condition, dating to about 1775. The sides portray two men and a horse in wooded landscapes with castles in the hazy background. Perhaps they are travelers to the castles. The colorful depictions bring to mind the elite country life of those days, concentrated on the estates of wealthy landowners. The lid is similarly decorated. The pot bears the early Copenhagen mark of three wavy lines, and the porcelain body has several flaws from the firing, common for the early wares. The overall baluster shape is softly modulated and very plastic in form. There is very slight gilding wear, and the handle shows perhaps more wear to the gilding from normal use, but the only damage is some minute roughness to the flower finial. One side of the spout has a separation where it attaches to the body, but this is original to the making. Amazing condition for an antique of this age. Copenhagen porcelain in this high style is quite rare.
