French Teacup and Saucer, Porcelaine de Paris, Blue Arrow Teacup, French Tea Cup, Parisian Teacup, Antique Tea Cups Vintage
Luxurious Porcelaine de Paris graces the table. M. Achille Bloch ran the factory from 1887, until 1914. His son Robert took over after World War I and transferred a part of the activity to a new factory located 200 miles South of Paris.
The decorating studios stayed in Paris, rue de la Pierre-Levee. Robert Bloch was helped by his wife who was a talented painter who worked with Rob mallet-Stevens. The name "Porcelaine de Paris" associated with the Locre's blue arrows, appeared at that period.
During World War II, the factory was moved to New York and operated under the Blue Arrows workshop.
The price also includes free US shipping, free gift wrapping and free insurance.
Measurements: The saucer is 5.6" in diameter. The cup is 1.75" high and 4" from rim to rim. The gold is hard to photograph because of its reflections. It is lovely. Does it show use from its almost 100 years of use? There are very fine lines which created a lovely patina. There aren't any scratches which damaged the paint.
