Rare hand painted Old Paris porcelain First Empire (1810) pedestal cup and saucer by Darte Freres with a continuous pastoral scene in which Napoleonic era French and/or Prussian soldiers are standing guard. The cup exhibits gilded banding which continues to the inside of the cup and repeats on the saucer. The set is in excellent condition with minor age related gilt wear, and was once probably part of a larger tea service.

The Darte Freres Paris porcelain factory was started in 1808 by Louis-Joseph and Jean-Francois and quickly gained a reputation for producing beautiful hand decorated hard paste porcelain wares specializing in tea services, cabinet plates, and vases. The factory was not long-lived, but was a favorite and under royal protection of Emperor Napoleon's mother.

Size of cup 3 ½" H, size of saucer 4 7/8" D.
