Description

35mm color slide of two porcelain marks on the plate from the Catherine the Great Service in Slide 56. One mark (3 dots) is for Jean-Baptiste Tandart aîné (the elder; 1729–1816, active 1754–1800 or 1803), who was one of the “most skilled flower-painters” of his era (Eriksen and De Bellaigue 1987, 96). The gilder’s mark (cross-hatched lines at the bottom of the image) is for Michel-Barnabé Chauvaux aîné (the elder; also known as Chauveaux, active ca. 1753–88), a “gilder and painter of ornaments” (Tardy 1981, 533). The number 56 is handwritten on the slide.

See the Fritzsche Porcelain Exhibit for more details on the Catherine the Great Service, the color bleu céleste (celestial blue), Tandart, Chauvaux, and porcelain marks.
