Vincennes Porcelain Factory

Soft-paste porcelain with enamel decoration

Part 1: 8.1 x 16.2 cm (3 3/16 x 6 3/8 in.)

Purchase from the J. H. Wade Fund 1944.225.a


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