Description
Jacob Petit - porcelaine de Paris - sugar bowl with rich polychrome and gold decoration - Louis Philippe - Porcelain
France - Mid 19th century

Mounted plate or cake dish with rich decoration of very fine bouquets of flowers, rocaille decoration gilt in fine gold and turquoise blue lip. Attributed to Jacob Petit, unsigned. 19th century Restoration period, circa 1830-40.

Jacob Mordecai (known as Jacob Petit), born and died in Paris (1796-1868), is a 19th century French porcelain manufacturer. Student of Antoine-Jean Gros and then trained at the Sèvres factory, Jacob Petit specialised in luxury porcelain. His name is still linked to the originality of his production. Abundant and diverse, once judged to be of a bad taste exuberance, his pieces are now sought after for their originality, the quality of their finish and the richness of their polychromy. Our plates are typical of this production, exuberant rocaille shapes, décor richly adorned with fine gold, but above all with admirable bouquets of very finely executed flowers.

Very good condition, fresh colours, unworn gilding.
