Paris Porcelain coffee can, ‘en grisaille’ landscape with gilt figures, c. 1810

$380.00 AUD

Stylish Paris Porcelain coffee can, well painted en grisaille with a continuous landscape of trees and buildings, inhabited by series of figures in tooled gold, a thick gilt band to the handle, lip and foot.
Incised ‘d’,
circa 1810.

6.4cm high
good condition

A can & saucer of the same shape in the Ariana Museum, Geneva, has coarser grasille landscapes, minus the gilt firgures; it is by Bringeon, a little-documented Paris Porcelain maker; other examples have much finer work also en grisaille, and this could possibly be another variation.
The mark is a stencil, and as with many other Paris ‘manufacturers’, they probably bough blanks from one of the main manufacturers of porcelain in Paris, and merely decorated them. This opens up a multitude of other possible attributions for this interesting unmarked piece.
