A Frankenthal blue-ground coffee-cup and trembleuse stand Circa 1762-65, blue crowned CT monogram and various indistinct blue marks to both, incised triangle within circle to cup and 3 X to stand
Each side of the cup with Cupid, holding a flaming torch and with a bow and a quiver of arrows, within shaped cartouches edged with gilt cisel scrolling foliage and flowers, the ground with caillout gilding, with an entwined handle, the stand with a pierced trelliswork gallery and similarly decorated with musical trophies, gilt dentil rims (minute wear to gilt rims of stand)
This cup and trembleuse is decorated very much in the Svres manner. For a Svres jug and basin of 1757 with very similar decoration, see Rosalind Savill, op. cit. (1988), vol. II, pp. 705-707, no. C452-3.
