This beautiful cup was made in the 19th century, it is composed of a Canton porcelain and a beautiful and rich gilt bronze mount.
The Canton porcelain was destined to the exportation in the 19th century. They bear a characteristic decoration painted on a white background depicting large medallions or cartouches with palace scenes and natural decor with birds, plants and flowers motifs. The busy backgrounds use very often gold.
Thus, we find on our porcelain some cartouches with life scenes inhabited by small characters in traditional outfits on a background composed of stylized black and red flowers. About the mount, it depicts a remarkable carved decor composed mainly of plante friezes on the foot. Two beautiful handles are spreading out in acanthus leaves come to flank both sides.
