35mm color slide of a porcelain mark on one of the Bouillard cups from Slides 9a–b. The top part of the image contains the painter’s mark for André-Vincent Vielliard (1717–90; active 1752–90; known as Vielliard père or aîné [the elder], sometimes spelled Vieillard), who was one of the most prolific and well-known painters at Vincennes and Sèvres (Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 97; Savill 3:1074). Beneath the painter’s mark is a blue, interlaced, reversed, double L, which corresponds to the Vincennes soft-paste mark; the letter A indicates that the date is 1753 (Chaffers 1965, 1:560). The number 9 is handwritten on the slide.

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