The Sceaux factory dates from the middle of the 18th century. It adopted the ceramic fashions of its time, notably the rocaille style and the low-fire decoration imitating porcelain. The factory produced common earthenware, fine earthenware and soft porcelain. The high quality production was intended to compete with the soft porcelain of Vincennes, the future Sèvres porcelain, which alone has the privilege of producing porcelain.

Codition: The piece is in good condition there is what appeas to be a crack in the underneath, wich is a fault in the glaze when it was fired,
one flower on the side is slightly deformed, also a firing fault.
