Chinese porcelain broth with Pompadour decoration, Qianlong period circa 11750

Round ecuelle and its circular display dish in porcelain of China with polychrome decoration "pompadour" in enamels of the pink family of flowers and branches blooming of pomegranates and peonies framing escutcheons with eagle and fish attributed to Madame de Pompadour.
Small recovery of the brown fillet on the edge of the display stand.

Circa 1750, Qianlong period (1736-1795). 18th century.

Width of the bowl : 24 cm ; Diameter of the display stand : 25 cm.

Cf. a copy of this decoration reproduced in "Cargaison de Chine ; porcelaine de la Compagnie des Indes du musée de Lorient" page 65.

Since the 19th century, art historians have attributed the commission of this service to the famous mistress of King Louis XV, the Marquise de Pompadour. Indeed, the eagles and fish in the cartouches would symbolize respectively King Louis XV, and the Marquise de Pompadour whose surname was Poisson. This attractive hypothesis has been questioned by Michel Beurdeley who argues that the Marquise de Pompadour could not have tolerated a service whose decorative elements recall her plebeian origins. The richness of the decoration, the colorful palette particularly appreciated in France at that time and especially the elegant, refined and sought-after forms of the service's pieces make it in any case the object of a commission from an important and wealthy member of Louis XV's court.
