Rare Sèvres soft-paste porcelain saucer, decorated with green and pink ground and a polychrome reserve of two birds in a landscape.
Factory mark (interlaced 'Ls') in blue, enclosing the date-letter 'g' for 1760.
Diameter: 13.6 cm (5 3/8 inches)
Very good condition (really minute flake chip and very slight wear)
We attribute the decoration of the reserve to the bird painter Etienne EVANS (active from 1752 to 1807).
Our piece is part of an exceptional 'déjeuner' set, now unfortunately dispersed, of which a cup ('gobelet Bouillard') and a saucer are in the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut (number 88 of the museum's porcelain catalog). Another cup and its saucer are reported to be at the Art Institute of Chicago.
