Footnotes

  • These plates are part of an as yet unidentified service similar to the one delivered in 1763 to Henri-Léonard-Jean-Baptiste Bertin. David Peters has suggested that the 1771 green-ground service could be among the services delivered that year to the Paris marchand-mercier Simon-Philippe Poirier (see D. Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the Eighteenth Century, vol.II (2005), 71-8, p. 468 for a list of other recorded pieces from the same service). A bottle-cooler (seau à demi-bouteille) from this service was sold in these Rooms, 13 May 2009, lot 237.
