Nymphenburg Cup And Saucer
Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, Germany
glazed porcelain with over-glaze painting, 24 k gold edge
Originating in the late 18th century, but, until now, not produced in modern times, this extraordinarily finely painted faux-rustic piece was especially created by Nymphenburg for Fertile Garden. When creating a copper engraving from an existing picture, it was quite common for the engraver to attach the image with tacks or small nails to a pin-board in front of the worktable.
