Chinoiserie Cup & Saucer

This is a superb cup ( teabowl or Koeppchen style) and saucer made by Hoechst in the 18th century - in about 1760. Both pieces are hand painted with an outstanding Chinoiserie design including an Oriental gentleman (looking rather similar to Meissen Hoeroldt figures) as well as plants, vases and even a teapot on a platform. An Indian Kakiemon flower is included as well and the rim has a nice trim to it with a brown edge. I had not seens this before but my books had an example included. The set is in superb condition with some very minor wear. The cup is marked underneath with an over glaze red wheel mark as well as some sort of impressed mark while the saucer has the under glaze blue wheel amrk with a crown over it and some different impressed marks as shown. The examples in my book had the same different marks which is fine since they overlapped from 1756 until 1765 so that helps date the pieces nicely. The cup is 1.625 inches tall and 2.625 inches in diameter. The saucer is 1.125 inch tall and 4.875 inches in diameter. One of the nicest set I ahve seen by this maker! Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1249
