Description

35mm color slide of a porcelain mark for the litron cup in Slide 29. This is believed to be the mark for Fallot (active 1764–90), a “ground color worker, painter, gilder, burnisher, and enameller,” who is particularly known for inventing his own special form of blue ground color, known as bleu Fallot (Savill 1988, 3:1032; Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 153 no. 43). The number 29 is handwritten on the slide.

Find more on the litron cup and bleu Fallot in the Fritzsche Porcelain Exhibit.
