Hi Ivo,
I've seen this unusual combination of colours in France - can't recall instantly whether Vallerysthal or Portieux - one of them produced a stemware line '?Carmen?' in amber (stem) and blue (cup)
Hope this helps
best regards

I know what you mean - Portieux still  have this service in production, which was designed for Napoléon - but I think the amber is much lighter. The item is also rougher than most Val/Por I know - so I wondered maybe it could me Meisenthal?

...and, as we are still in the upper section of this thread I may correct myself without quoting:
The amber/blue combination I meant is Portieux, the name is ISABELLE (instead Carmen sorry) and the cup is amber, and the stem is blue (uranium)

Ivo, can you please submit more regarding the pattern of this basket - description, photos? I definitely cannot make out - are there roses, grapes or what else?
Thank you!

Wild rose, without any doubt. There is a flower in full bloom just where the handle is attached, the leaves are botanically correct for roses and there is one rose bud at the end of the twig.

very good description which makes it really visible, Ivo thank you!
this sounds and looks like the classic 'Meissen-Rose' how we call this pattern here, very often also found on ?punched? silver items like my small cups and a napkin ring...
Should we thus look into the Brockwitz or even Bohemian direction?

Sorry, so far always forgot to mention: it's a beauty - I like it very much!

Visited Valérysthal several times, it is a lovely place. A tiny valley in the North Vosges, in which a crumbling industrial complex overgrown with weeds. It used to be a big factory, not any more. They have been reorganised as a Cristallerie, and they make very nice tableware - still in conjunction with Portieux, both under the management of Harzviller, the dinnerware maker.

Notley / Miller's p25 shows a matching blue/amber tazza.   I had until recently a matching celery and water jug.    Always unusual combinations of pressed and hand-made.   The celery was magnificent with a tall three dolphin pressed base and a ribbed hand made tall top.

Notley increases the value substantially for reverse pairs.

Always, in my experience, blue/amber, never any other colour combination.
