A most unusual blanc de chine rhyton cup of hard paste German porcelain of the 18th century. The features and details are simply amazing as the discerning collector will observe hand cut details in the scrolling tendrils that flank the sides, as well as the hand molded mane of the backside of the rams head. Every detail is hand accented, evidenced by the slight imperfections that only an artisan would leave behind. There is no makers mark or size numbers to indicate exact origin, but according to research, the rich detailing and high level of craftsmanship points to one of the early German manufacturer's, most likely the Nymphenburg Castle manufacturer. Condition: No chips, hairlines, or other damage, perfect. Measures about 8" high.
