Circa 1700-1710
Overall height : 20 cm (7 7/8 inches)
Diameter : 10,8 cm (4 1/4 inches)
Excellent condition ; very minor firing defect to the knop

Both pieces bear the label of collector Jean Bloch (but were not included in his sale on 2nd December 1961)
Provenance : The collection of Monsieur L., sold at auction by Maître Denis Herbette in Doullens (Somme), on 1st October 2006, lot 15

An almost identical example is at the Musée national Adrien Dubouché in Limoges and another (smaller) at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (see photos).

The Saint-Cloud manufactory is one of the few in the 18th century to have marked some pieces twice, under the body and under the cover. This was done only on the finest products.
