A Sèvres Sugar Bowl & Cover, 1757-8

This pot á sucre Bouret has the appearance of an early Vincennes object but in fact is marked with the date letter E for 1757-8. It has entirely gilded decoration of military trophies, trees and birds – perhaps a reference to the on-going Seven Years War (1756-63).

Height 9.5 cm (3 3/4")
