1845-6 Sevres Royal Coffee Pot from the Hunting Service, Chateau de Fontainebleau
Delicious and rare, and with a royal provenance, this coffee pot is from the Sevres Factory, and was made as part of the Hunting Service, made for King Louis Philippe, for his hunting lodge, the magnificent Chateau de Fontainebleau. The "Service de Chasse de Fontainebleau" was made with two different borders. This one, the simplest, is usually termed ordinaire. The impressed numbers on the base show that the porcelain of the coffeepot was made in November 1845, and the green underglaze stamp is also 1845. The decoration was added in 1846, as attested to by the gold overglaze stamp. The red stamp, also overglaze, demonstrates its destination of the Chateau de Fontainebleau.
The decoration consists of lavish gilded strapwork, and a coloured frieze of four birds and four trophies within a foliate border of green leaves with red bids. two of the trophies are oval with painted cartouche. One says " Chocolat a la Vanille" in minute writing. The remaining trophies are lozenges with the crowned LP monogramme of King Louis Philippe.
The piece is in pristine condition. It stands 22 cm tall. For comparison and more information:https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/sevres-fontainebleau-hunt-service-cup-176184693
