Footnotes

  • Although unmarked, these cups show a high resemblance to pieces made at the Giustiniani factory in the first quarter of the 19th century. The decoration in turn is inspired by the products of the Real Fabbrica Ferdinandea. One of the most famous court services produced by the Real Fabbrica was the Servizio delle Vedute Napoletane, better known as the Servizio dell'Oca made for the Court of Ferdinand IV at the end of the 18th century. This type of 'veduta' or topographical decoration became one of the most prolifically reproduced decoration types in Naples. Its popularity was hugely boosted by the large amount of travellers on their Grand Tour.
