Seaux à Bouteille, ca. 1730
These cache-pots are decorated in the style of Jean Bérain the Elder (1638–1711), a designer and engraver whose influence can be traced across the French decorative arts. Bérain’s compositions of delicate interlacing arabesques were adapted for monochrome blue tableware at the Clérissy manufactory beginning in 1710. These were widely admired and copied by faience manufacturers throughout France.
