F. J. B. Watson, "The Paris collections of Madame B.", in The Connoisseur. An illustrated magazine for Collectors, London, vol. 155, January-April 1964, p. 8, fig. 9  and p. 76, fig. 6 (ill.)

Catalogue Note

The mounts of this pair of vases were submitted to a particular tax adopted between 1745 and 1749 probably in order to fund the Austrian Succession War. The mark certifies a dating during this period or just before (L. Moor, « L'orfèvrerie au C couronné », in L'Estampille-L'Objet d'Art, n. 320, pp. 46-53).
