C1783 FRENCH PAIR SEVRES PORCELAIN CACHEPOTS HAND PAINTED SIGNED CUPID & PSYHCE
I have been very fortunate to have been able to purchase a single owner estate of very beautiful and choice, mostly French Empire period to Napoleon III porcelains, circa 1800 to 1870. All of them will be listed here on over the next week or so. Please see my other listings for more out of this strong grouping of antiques. All sold with .
This listing is for a pair of 18-19th century signed Sevres cachepots. Each is quite large measuring at their bases 9 by 7 inches and are 8 1/2 inches high (23 by 18 by 22 cm). They are unusual in both their design and their colors. Above the shaped bases is 4 picture frame like decorations each containing a different hand painted reserve. The front of each cachepot has a signed painting of Cupid and Phyche. Both are signed by the artist "JACOBE". The other 3 reserves have floral bouquets.
The color combination used here is very rich. The main background color is what Sevres called celeste blue. The secondary color is Sevres cobalt blue. Note that the flower reserves have a very unusual deep gray background. Each has the Sevres mark in under glaze blue containing "ff". This mark dates the pair to 1783.
The condition of the cachepots is excellent. Please see photos formore on the look and condition of these beautiful examples of French porcelain work.
