Description

35mm color slide of a plate and wine bottle cooler (Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory). Each piece has a bright pink ground color, with a painted landscape depicting a hunting scene, set against a white background in the center. The plate also has three oval white medallions in its pink border, each containing multi-colored flowers and bordered with gilt garlands. The numbers 21 and 22 are handwritten on the slide.

Find more information on these hunting scenes, which may have been inspired by Oudry’s tapestries depicting Louis XV, in the Fritzsche Porcelain Exhibit.
