A du Paquier, Vienna, two handled covered beaker and saucer

Circa 1725

The fluted body applied with angular handles and decorated in iron red with flower sprays and dog tooth border.

The form of the beaker and trembleuse saucer derives from Meissen Böttger porcelain pieces. The hand-carved nature of the fluting and the rather clumsily fitting lid suggests an early date. The lid is a rare survival.
