Painted in green, red, blue, yellow, aubergine and black the formal symmetrical decoration of lambrequins and floral ornament in the régence style places this as a very early piece of polychrome decoration for Saint Cloud. It belongs to a very rare group characterised by this formality and dark palate. A circular salt from the Musée de l’ile-de-France, Sceaux (inv. No 72-46-1) is illustrated in la Porcelaine a Saint-Cloud, Musée de Saint-Cloud, 1977 cat no 63. A variant of this form of decoration on another salt was pre-empted by the Musée de Saint-Cloud, in the sale of the Ancienne Collection de Monsieur L…, sold by SARL SVV Denis Herbette, Doullens, 1 Oct 2006, lot 75 (sale price without premium, 7200 Euros).
Slight polishing to the rim of the cover suggests it may once have been mounted
