Catalogue Note

For a comparable part-déjeuner with topographical scenes see R.de Plinval de Guillebon, Dagoty à Paris, la manufacture de l'impératrice, p.40, cat.no.20. One cup from the déjeuner illustrated here shows another view of the Parc de St. Cloud.

The Pavillon de Breteuil dates back to 1672 when Louis XIV ordered his architect Gobert to build the Trianon de Saint-Cloud (as it was originally known) for his brother "Monsieur", then living in the nearby Château de Saint-Cloud. It took its present form in 1743, and the name Pavillon de Breteuil in 1785 when it became associated with the Baron de Breteuil.
