1768 French Sèvres Cup and saucer in the Royal Collection, UK - From the curators' comments: "Sèvres soft-paste porcelain covered cup and saucer. White ground painted in polychrome with floral trails and a mosaic pattern. The cup, which is in the form of an inverted and truncated cone, is fitted with two white and gold handles and a domed cover crowned by a carnation-and-leaf knob painted naturalistically. The deep saucer has angled sides."
