Description

Hard-paste porcelain painted in turquoise, blue, yellow, aubergine, iron-red and two green enamels of bright tones with details in black and gilding with a warrior, a general and a lady in landscape.

Hard-paste porcelain painted in turquoise, blue, yellow, aubergine, iron-red and two green enamels of bright tones with details in black and gilding. The sides are shallow and well rounded with a slightly lipped rim springing from a low broad base. The interior is delicately painted with an overall scene of a warrior gazing in a surprise at a general flanked by a lady wearing a tall plumed headdress. Each figure is labelled with his name pencilled in black. The scene is a rocky green landscape; the underside is applied with an apple-green enamel wash.
