Vase with Lid
Model probably by Jean-Claude Duplessis, Sr., French, c. 1695 - 1774. Made by the Sèvres porcelain factory, Sèvres, France, 1756 - present. Decorated by Charles-Nicolas Dodin, French, 1734 - 1803.
The scene on this vase, entitled The Fortune Teller, is taken from an engraving by Pierre-Alexandre Aveline (French, 1702-1760), which in turn is after a design by François Boucher (French, 1703-1770). Boucher designed the composition for a tapestry series made at the Beauvais factory.
