Set of three porcelain tazze by Royal Vienna
Austrian, early 20th Century
Larger tazza: Height 15cm, diameter 34cm
Smaller tazze: Height 9cm, diameter 34cm
This elegant set of three tazze (a tazza being a plate raised on a socle) is by Royal Vienna, one of the leading producers of luxury porcelain in Europe. Each tazza is designed and decorated in the Neoclassical style: each features a circular foot below a waisted socle, the white porcelain ground delicately parcel gilt. The top of each tazza features a classical illustration, one of a bacchanalia and two related to Helen of Troy. The circular illustrated panels are surrounded by a superb parcel gilt border with cobalt blue accents.
The undersides are marked for Royal Vienna and labelled to indicate the depicted scene.
