Description

The Vienna factory was founded in 1717 and decorators and chemists from Meissen landed there, where the first European porcelain was produced. The management by the state ensured the necessary economic resources, and the subsequent discovery of kaolin deposits in Hungary allowed the production of a better quality pulp. The cup, with a typical so-called crater shape, with a gold threaded volute handle, a shiny gold background and various decorations, has a mirror with a view of the New Gate of Vienna seen from the outside of the city, while the saucer offers a tile with the vision of the same door but from inside the city, therefore with a lively and complete sense of reality. The crater shape is typical of Vienna production during the Biedermaier period, when a characteristic bourgeois taste predominates. Landscape painting is also very frequent in the decorative repertoire of Viennese porcelain; the most represented subjects are precisely the views of Vienna and its surroundings, taken from the late eighteenth-century engravings by Carl Schutz, Lorenz Janska and others.
