Lot Details

Footnotes

  • The decoration of this cup is very finely painted and highly reminiscent of Vienna porcelain produced under Conrad von Sorgenthal. The fashion for Viennese neo-classical porcelain came to Naples through the consort of the King of Naples, Ferdinando IV, Maria Carolina of Austria, daughter of Maria Theresa of Austria. Tin glaze was used at the factory between 1783 and discontinued in 1788. The view of Vesuvius from Portici is taken from a print by Claude-Louis Chatelet.

    Another cup and saucer of the same refined style of decoration with a tin glaze was sold in these rooms as part of the collection of Procida Mirabelli di Lauro, 6 July 2010, lot 65.
