Description

The pieces composing this individual tea set are entirely typical of Chantilly soft-paste porcelain in the Kakiemon style. Both the form and decoration of these pieces were inspired by Japanese prototypes. The use of knobs in the form of trumpet-shaped blossoms is characteristic of Chantilly wares.
