Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The quatrefoil form is taken from a Meissen original which would also have been decorated in kakiemon style but here the artist has chosen to scatter the flower heads evenly across the surface in a very un-Japanese but delightful way.
Louis-Henri, duc de Bourbon, the prince de Condé, the owner of the Chantilly factory, inherited and added to a great collection of porcelain from Japan and Meissen which were used as models for his own factory.
The strong primary colours and brilliant white of the opaque tin glaze suggest an early date from around 1735 when he was granted letters Patent authorising him to make porcelain fine de toutes couleurs, espèces, façons et grandeurs à l’imitation de la porcelain de Japon for a period of twenty years.
The cup 5.2cm. high
The saucer 13.5cm. wide
