About this artwork

As the artistic director of the Vincennes Porcelain Manufactory, the Italian-born goldsmith and designer Jean-Claude Duplessis was responsible for many of the innovative forms of the Rococo and early Neoclassical styles that the factory produced. Duplessis designed porcelain vases, tea and dinnerwares, and gilt-bronze mounts for porcelain. These objects often possess a particularly sensual and organic quality that was new to porcelain at the time.
