The function of this pot is uncertain. There is no obvious sign of it having had a lid, perhaps it is part of a toilet service. The small squat baluster form is finely turned with ribs at the foot and neck.

It is decorated with grand feu green enamel and in a subsequent firing, in iron red and gold in a Chinese landscape. The yellow appears to be a petit feu enamel but could also be in part grand feu.

A pot à crème in the Musée des Arts Décoratif (MAD inv. 8848) decorated in a similar fashion with identical use of gilding around the flowing green is, unusually for a polychrome piece, marked with an incised StCT.
