A perfectly preserved pair of 18th century French porcelain demitasse cups and saucers by famed maker Sevres albeit in their earlier form as 'Vincennes' porcelain. The pair of petit cups and deep saucers are 5cm in height combined, and despite being manufactured in the mid 18th century are in virtually pristine condition with only some minor wear to the gilding. The hand-painted mark to the bottom of the cup and saucer indicates manufacture in 1755, just prior to the factory relocating from Vincennes to Sevres. The cups depict a young man and woman on a grassy plain and the saucers depict landscapes of the French countryside.
Measure - saucers 8.5cm wide and cups 4.25cm in height
