Adelaide Alsop Robineau was one of the most influential figures in ceramics just after the turn of the century. With her husband, Samuel, she published the influential journal, 'Keramic Studio'; she participated in the innovative collabortive porcelain-making and educational enterprise at University City, Missouri; and she produced some of the most exquisite work in porcelain ever to be fashioned in this country. She was one of a group of pioneering women who tackled the difficult medium of porcelain. Robineau's works are characterized by jewel-like crystalline glazes and painstaking carved decoration. The eggshell-thin porcelains that she executed are among the most virtuostic of all her work. This coupe, in a shape inspired by Japanese porcelains, is one of only two surviving examples of Robineau eggshell porcelain. It represents the most difficult and time-consuming work ever undertaken by its creator. The designs, excised and incised on a body of paperlike thinness, reveal portions of almost transparent luminosity.
