The Collection of Mario Buatta Miles Mason Porcelain Cup and Saucer
Provenance: The Private Collection of Mario Buatta
Mario loved beautiful objects from the English Regency period. Miles Mason made this cup and saucer in England circa 1805. It is hand-painted with delicate and beautiful golden leaves and acorns. The combination of soft gilding and very fine thin red lines make the decoration of this cup and saucer unique. This was once part of a more extensive tea set. We don’t know if Mario purchased it as a single piece or as part of a set.
Dimensions: 5.25″ diameter of the saucer x 2.75″ tall
