Tazza with cover

French, Saint-Porchaire or Paris

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 544

As their different color schemes suggest, the cup and cover did not originally form a set. The foot and the stem’s lower section, beneath the ring of white zigzags in relief, are modern replacements. Near the lip of the cup is a band with a flowering vase-and-bird motif. The shield of the powerful Montmorency-Laval family appears on the interior.
