Catalogue Note

Although this cup is unsigned, the style of design, notably in the drawing of the lotus-shaped flowers and the roundels set with geometric designs, as well as the application of enamels in gradated colours, including pink and red, light and dark blue; can be closely related to a mosque lamp in the Petit Palais, Paris, inv. no.ODUT1949, which is signed Brocard, Paris, and dated 1868, strongly suggesting a similar attribution can be made for the present cup.
