Description

35mm color slide of a porcelain mark for the plate in Slide 59. The mark is for Charles-Nicolas Dodin (1734–1803; active 1754–1802), a painter whose “meticulous technique” was “unrivalled” at the porcelain factory (Savill 1988, 3:1029–30). The number 59 is handwritten on the slide.

See the Fritzsche Porcelain Exhibit for more details on Dodin, painter's marks, and dotted grounds such as “partridge eye” (œil de perdrix).
