A signed silver-gilt ewer - now in the Cathedral of Poitiers - by Nicolas Delaunay (c.1625-1727) and dated from 1697 seems to have been the model for this pair of ormolu ewers. Their idiosyncratic standing panther handles were most likely inspired by a Jacques Stella engraving from his Second Livre des Vases, published in 1697, and can also be seen in the Louis XIV pair of ewers attributed to Michael Anguier (1612-1686) which belonged to the famous Blondel de Gagny Collection. The mask supporting the handle and the espagnolette mask on the frieze appear in three drawings attributed to Delaunay’s half-brother Jacques de Meaux from the Tessin Collection in Stockholm, which at the same time also relate closely to Anguier’s model.
