My Vintage Bavaria Fragonard Love Story Teapot

One of the more popular themes for teacups and china is the Fragonard image.

Vintage china with images from this famous French painter listed for sale online are very commonly called "Victorian couple" images, but he lived from 1732 to 1836.  And the Victorian image is from the reign of Queen Victoria which was from 1837 to 1901.

I acquired this beautiful piece in the love story theme from a lady who had it in her family since her mother bought it in 1960:

It was only used for display, and it shows.

All of the gold is in exceptional condition.  The transfer images are still in beautiful condition.  There are no chips.  No cracks.  No crazing.  And the inside is clean & white.

It is a very popular teapot in my vintage Etsy shop.  I am always on the lookout for more Fragonard and Love Story theme items.
