A phenomenal Ultramarine blue and gold Old Paris pot ce creme cup. A striking blue pot de creme cup with gold trim, empire finial. This may be one of the most beautifully painted pot de creme cups I've ever seen. The heavy gold bands along the body of the cup and even on the foot are amazing. Add to that everything is completely hand painted. The scroll design between the gold bands is exquisite.
Most likely this pot de creme would have been part of a set with a tiered tray. It was made in France in the mid to late 1800's. The finial style is referred to as Empire, from that period (about 1800 to 1820).
