Antique Cup and saucer with signed handpainted scene of Napoleon and his army after the painting by Ernest Meissonier (1815 - 1891), The Campagne de France, 1814. Artist signature J Missant. Believed to be done in the studio of A LAMM, Dresden , one of the greatest porcelain houses in Europe during the 19th century. Saucer measures a little under 5 3/4 inches in diameter and curls up to a height of 3/4inch; cup is just under 2 inches high. Deep green ground, decorated in heavy gilding with foliage, shells and raised jewels. The cup has a large, rectangular reserve opposite the handle. It is surrounded by a gold border with raised gilded ''jewels''. Within the reserve is a handpainted scene, taken from the very famous painting by Ernest Meissonier, depicting Napoleon and his army, on horseback. It is artist signed on the lower right, J Missant. Both cup and saucer are marked underneath with two marks: a pair of blue crossed arrows and a dark rose. The latter mark was used by A Lamm, Dresden, who were famous for their superior and beautiful decorating (painting and gilding), on porcelain, often done on blanks from other factories. They also used a mark similar to the Meissen crossed swords at one time. Condition: both cup and saucer are in very good condition, with no damage of any sort and no restorations. A knowledgeable person wrote me:cup was amde by Boudois & Bloch painting studio, Paris around 1890 - 1900. Identification are the 2 arrows. Lamm had a lamb with Dresden as his mark. One more note: Germans do not portrait Napoleon, since we we were in war with him for years. It is a french piece of art. Many thanks.
