Description

This impressive porcelain dessert service is by the Paris porcelain manufacturer Feuillet. Feuillet produced goods during the Restauration period, the name given to the period when France was ruled by the two brothers of Louis XVI: Louis XVIII, who reigned between 1815 and 1823, and Charles X, who ruled from 1823 until 1830. The Restauration style refers back to the Neoclassicism of the late ancien regime, which the present service demonstrates beautifully.

The service features pieces designed in the Sèvres style, with green ground, gilt accents, and imagery of birds and flowers predominating. The pieces feature gilt framed panels of birds and floral bouquets, which are surrounded by apple green rims with gilt framed cartouche reserves enclosing further floral sprays.

The service is comprised of a pair of large centrepiece vases with covers; two pairs of ice pails with covers, one pair larger and one pair smaller; twenty comports of various sizes and styles, including four stemmed tazze, and six three-tier tazze of two different kinds; forty-eight dessert plates, with eighteen painted with ornithological subjects and thirty painted with floral bouquets; a pair of pierced fruit baskets; and two bowls with liners.

The pieces are signed in gilt ‘Feuillet’.
