Green quadrille Tea cup and saucer
Under Louis XV, the wellknown Charles-Raymond Granchez and other marchands merciers, the interior decorators of the time, were taste-makers at court. They started fashions and informed the Manufacture de Sèvres about the latest trends to follow.
This cup, painted by Boulanger père, is a good example. Extremely modern for the day and age, it innovated by covering the entire cup and saucer with a regular grid pattern of pale green leaves interlaced with leaves of gold.
