Bernardaud A La Reine Medicis Vase 8″ x 7″
The original probably dates from 1784 and is present in all the museums of the world specialized in porcelain. The “Ancien Manufacture Royale” gave the name “Comte d’Artois” to this shape and “A la Reine” to its decor. The decor is very characteristic of the 18th century: it consists of flowers, tulips, roses, honeysuckle, carnations and daisies. The flowers are painted with natural bright colors ; a blue rim emphasizes the border composed of golden wolf teeth.
