19th Century, Paris Porcelain Tea Set Featuring Napoleonic Portraits with Tray


A fine delicate porcelain tea set comprised of 26 pieces (two lids missing). It encompasses a teapot (missing its lid), creamer (also missing its lid), twelve teacups and twelve saucers. The teapot is in the neoclassical form with a gryphon-head shaped spout that can be often found made circa 1820s-1850s along with the laurel leaf designs typical of the era. The bodies of the pieces feature a red-ground painted onto white with decorative gilding and a Napoleonic portrait featured on each. Each piece is signed underneath with the name identifying the individual’s portrait and includes: Napoleon, Josephine, various generals (only three of the cups are missing the identification). The porcelain pieces feature variations of a crowned N mark, but this is irrelevant to their identification as this is common practice for Paris porcelain pieces and similar works feature other various markings. A rectangular cranberry ground porcelain tray decorated with a floral motif and gilding. Marked underneath with a triangular mark with JPT. This tray has a number incised into the porcelain (manufacture/set number), and has a gilded.
