KING LOUIS XV FOR FONTAINEBLEAU
Two compotiers by Feuillet in the Sèvres style
Object n°741

Set of two hard-paste porcelain compotiers, of circular shape with shaped rims, the ornamentation resumes that of the Sèvres Louis KV service at Fontainebleau, with “camaïeu carmin” garlands of roses and flowers held by ribbons, at the center the quadruple cipher of King Louis XV embellished with gold, gilt ‘dents de loup’ on the rims.

Good condition, one has a few fire cracks.

Feuillet manufacture, Paris, first part of XIXth century (from 1814).

Gilt handmark “Feuillet”.


Diameter: 23 cm

Provenance

Even if these two compotiers do not come from the Louis XV service, as Feuillet was created in 1814, we can compare them to the pair preserved at the château de Fontainebleau (inv. F-1987.10.44 and inv. F-1987.10.45, with same shape and diameter), described in the book referenced above.

Note

The curators of Fontainebleau could not tell us when and why this pair, and so our pair, have been made by Feuillet and bought by the castle. As the service was sold at the French Révolution and scattered, one of the following owners could have ordered to Feuillet some additional pieces, including at least 4 compotiers (our pair and the pair of Fontainebleau, the only 4 pieces with this ornamentation by Feuillet known).
