COFFEE- CUP & SAUCER .
Painted in deep underglaze-blue, illustrating " La Dame au Parasol ", from Cornelius Pronk .
Period : QIANLONG , ca. 1738 .
This is probably from the last order for this pattern, brought to Amsterdam in 1739 , on the " Hogensmilde" . The pattern has been simplified for small objetcs like this one , f.e. the cell border lacks the figural and bird cartouches .
Very rare PRONK item ; " starcrack" on the saucer .
