  • French Faience Dish with Exotic Bird

  • From The Collection of Mario Buatta 4 Sprig Decorated 18th-Century Porcelain Saucers


    From the Collection of Mario Buatta

    These four elegant 18th-century saucers were made by “The Queen’s Factory”, the factory of Queen Marie Antoinette of France, circa 1785. Bands of sprig decoration, like the one seen here, were Marie Antoinette’s favorite porcelain patterns.
    Mario was keenly aware of the historical importance of porcelains from The Queen’s Factory, and he valued elegance in his decorative style. These saucers are elegant, refined, and sophisticated.
