35mm color slide of two porcelain marks for the teapot and cup in Slides 23a and 23b. The painter’s mark on the teapot is for Charles Buteux, known as Buteux père or aîné (the elder) (1719–82, active 1756–82), a painter and gilder, whose mark was an anchor. He specialized in trophies and attributes (Savill 1988, 3:1007–1009; Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 154 no. 200, 173n200; Tardy 1981, 530).

Find more details on Buteux and painters’ marks in the Fritzsche Porcelain Exhibit.
