Covered Jar, Clochettes Mauves, 1931

This is a Covered jar, Clochettes mauves. It was produced by Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory. It is dated 1931. Its medium is porcelain with colored pâte-sur-pâte, glazes, and gilding.

While this jar's form is based on that of a traditional Chinese ginger jar, its decoration resembles the oversized flower and leaf textiles patterns of Raoul Dufy. This form was introduced at the Sèvres factory in 1925, and the Clochettes Mauves pattern is listed in the Sèvres archives as the twelfth project approved in 1929.

It is credited Lent by The Cleveland Museum of Art, John L. Severance Fund, 1987.196.
