This is one of the best preserved examples of this type of decoration to have been on the market in recent years.
Examples of blanc de chine figures with traces of cold decoration are recorded in inventories of the Danish royal collection as early as 1690. A group of similarly coloured pieces in the collection of the Pitti Palace in Florence arrived with the Electress Palatine after she was widowed and returned from Dusseldorf, it is recorded that she instructed the court artist Foggini to get a local artist to decorate them in around 1721. Augustus the Strong was acquiring example for the Japanese Palace in Dresden around 1720.
It is probable that much of this decoration was added by the Dutch importers but other pieces were decorated across Europe; unlike fired decoration this needed no complicated technology to apply.
The porcelain, late 17th century, the decoration 1700-1720.
