*Rococo Revisited
Loving cup with cover by Paul de Lamerie in 1742-43, London. 38.4 ×24.1cm. Victoria & Albert Museum. De Lamerie supplied Lord Mountrath with a similar pair of cups that year (in The Metropolitan Museum). The ambitious decoration is inspired by earlier auricular silver (based on grotesque masks) and the 1720s work of leading Paris goldsmith, Thomas Germain. The skill of this virtuoso craftsman captivates the exuberant vitality of the Rococo style.
