Rockefeller Pattern Handled Cups #7464 Sold
Three beautifully decorated Chinese export porcelain handled cups, most likely for hot chocolate or coffee, in the rare ROCKEFELLER pattern each one decorated with a central Mandarin scene against a meticulously hand-painted scrolling foliate ground that resembles fine brocade, a detailed sepia landscape cartouche is centered by the handle on the reverse. One cup with a line to the interior, otherwise very good condition. These pieces are from some of the finest special order dinner services commissioned during this period, circa 1795. Nelson Rockefeller owned a complete service.
