Louis XVI period, 1779-1780

These exceptional and stunning vases are of hard-paste porcelain made at the Manufacture Royale de Porcelaine at Sèvres. The model is described in the surviving factory archives as vase oeuf à monter (′egg vase to be mounted′). The present examples are of the second size.The extremely rare ground colour is a soft lilac-pink. It is entirely covered with exquisite and very elaborate scenes of numerous Chinese figures engaged in all kinds of outdoor pursuits, accompanied by mythical beasts, birds and insects. This decoration is finely executed in translucent enamels and yellow, pink and green tones of gilding (sometimes overlaid with a bronzing wash). The very finely worked ormolu mounts are original and were specifically designed for these vases.
Marks: The mount comes easily off only one foot. The mark under it is painted in iron-red with the factory mark (interlaced Ls), the date-letters ′BB′ for 1779 and the personal mark of the Sèvres painter and gilder Jean-Jacques DIEU.
Overall height: 15 3/8 inches (39 cm).
