Writing Case With Plate And Buckets by Samson

This very beautiful writing case consists of a large bronze ingot mold on fluted column feet at the front and fluted tops at the back. Cabochons and friezes in rope, post frieze ... adorn the ingot mold. A large porcelain plate is the tray for this writing desk, the three bowl cups have a conical lid. The bronze mounts of the inkwells (base, hinge) are richly decorated with friezes and four foliage spandrels, the lids are shaped like open berry buds. The porcelain has a celadon background dotted with white ocelli with blue points, on the cups, reserves with friezes of golden foliage surrounds attributes of Music. On the stage a scene represents Cupid freeing a bird from its cage. The patterns of the reserves painted in light purple are finely detailed despite their very small size, confirming the quality of the painted patterns. Signed under the plate with the four S of the Samson house, the notion of intellectual property being different at the time, the Sèvres manufacture accepted that Samson use this signature, a pastiche of the two L of Sèvres, originally a Vincennes mark. Moreover, the most beautiful objects of the immense Samson production are fully-fledged works of art, here the quality of the decor is very close to that of the beautiful decor of Sèvres. A very similar model (entirely in bronze) is in the Nissim de Camondo museum in Paris (photo attached), and has a bell that our inkwell does not have. In addition, an inkwell of this model was used for the signing of the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807 between Napoleon I and Tsar Alexander I.
