Early Duc d'Angouleme cabinet cup and saucer decorated with gold encrusted bands and scrolls on a yellow ground. Both pieces are marked on the underside in red: MANUFrl de Mgr. le Duc d'angouleme a Paris. We have seen this same cup and saucer shape, with different decoration, in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. It's described as hard paste porcelain made ca. 1781-1793. The manufacture was under the protection of Louis-Antoine, Duc d’Angoulême , which allowed it to operate in spite of the Sevres monopoly. The Duc d'Angoulême's porcelain factory was active in Paris between 1781 and 1828 with an interlude during the French Revolution. In very good used condition with minor wear to paint, gilt, hairlines and imperfections as shown. We have two available, this listing is for one. Select 2 Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
