A Pair of Sèvres Dishes from a Service made in 1782-84, 1782-4

These green-ground square dishes (compotiers carrées) come from a dinner service made between 1782 and 1784 which was then presented by the King of France to a German Prince.

These pieces are dated for 1782 and 1784 which corresponds to the production of this service in the factory’s surviving kiln registers. The latter also agree with the painter’s marks which are for Pierre le jeune and Mme. Taillandier.   One is also marked for the gilder M.-B. Chauvaux.
