On the wall, the lid, and in the mirror, different scenic representations of parforce hunts with partially mounted or lying in wait hunters accompanied by their dogs during the chase of red deer. Below, brown, gold-highlighted rocaille consoles. Delicate floral arrangements encircling and in the background of the cup. Polychrome painting after copperplate engravings by Johann Elias Ridinger. Gold staffage. Partially restored. Sword mark. Pot height 23 cm. In the 18th century, parforce hunting was considered one of the most important social events of the year. The growing interest in hunting and the consumption of exotic beverages such as tea and coffee led to an increased demand for hunting services, which were mostly produced in connection with hunting table decorations and representation objects.
