Fine Porcelain and Pottery - Lot 288

An extremely rare and interesting Vincennes flared cup (gobelet la Reine) and saucer c.1751, with unusual gilt decoration of Turkish figures, to the cup one on horseback following a dog and another on foot with a long spear, to the saucer two having a swordfight while a dog looks on, reserved on a bleu lapis ground with gilt veining, interlaced LL marks, the cup cracked, 15cm. (2)

The figural decoration shown here appears to be otherwise unrecorded on Vincennes of this date, with similar bleu lapis wares being more typically decorated with birds or flowers.

Provenance: from a private collection.

Estimate: £1,500 - 2,000
Hammer Price £ 13,000
