104. 

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 .
