The vase of baluster form, the domed cover surmounted by a pinecone finial, painted with an amorous 18th century couple in a garden setting within an elaborate raised gilt surround, flanked by women faces, the reverse with a landscape. Indistinctly signed.
The corinthian column painted with a scene of a maiden and cherub, the reverse a landscape scene with a waterfall in the background.
In late 1739 - early 1740 the Sèvres Porcelain Factory opened in the Royal Château of Vincennes, Sixteen years later in 1756 the factory moved to the village of Sèvres located outside of Paris and in route to Louis XV's Palace of Versailles where it became the preeminent porcelain manufacturer in Europe. When the company ran into financial difficulties, the King who had become an avid client bought out the shareholders and became the sole owner. The factory remained in the royal family until it was nationalized following the French Revolution.
The range of objects produced in the first half of the nineteenth century was enormous, as were the types of decoration that they employed. The Sèvres factory produced ninety-two new designs for vases. The factory is still in production today.
