From The Collection of Mario Buatta A Minton Chinoiserie Cup and Saucer
Provenance: The Private Collection of Mario Buatta
Mario loved to have something special, especially if it had beautiful and unexpected color combinations.
This Minton cup and saucer have both. Made in England circa 1820, the cup and saucer each show a scene of boys at play.
The two chinoiserie scenes mix deep purple and orange with light green and several tones of blue. The colors are marvelous.
Dimensions: The saucer 5.5″ diameter x 1″ tall, The cup 3.25″ diameter x 2.25″ tall
