Description

35mm color slide of a porcelain mark on the plate in Slide 8. The mark is composed of a pair of blue, interlaced Ls (one facing forward, the other reversed), which represents the French royal monogram, and corresponds to the factory mark for soft-paste at both the Vincennes and Sèvres Manufactories from approximately 1750 to 1793. The fuzzy outlines of this mark might be explained by the fact that it may have been placed on the plate before the glaze, as was characteristic of pieces painted with bleu lapis ground color (lapis blue); this caused marks to run at the edges (Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 145). The number 8 is handwritten on the slide.
