Catalogue Note

A pair of plates from this service was sold in these rooms on October 11, 1995, lot 323. The note to the cataloguing offers the opinion of Mme. Tamara Préaud, Achiviste of the the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, that "'29 Av. 24 G.' must refer to the application of the ground color on April 29, 1824. 'DT' might have been the mark of Gilbert Drouet, a painter of flowers, who worked at Sèvres 1785 to 1825. 'AB. 28 Juin,' would be the date of the gilding and possibly the mark of Antoine-Gabriel Boullemier, a gilder at Sèvres from 1806 to 1838." Another plate was sold at Christie's, New York, on May 17, 2005, lot 86, where the service's provenance and history are fully discussed.
