Description

This covered bowl is one of the earliest surviving examples of Vincennes porcelain. Its decorations, particularly the lacy borders, show the influence of Meissen porcelain, but an individual note is struck in the extreme delicacy and colorful restraint of the painting of the landscape scenes.
