1767 Louis XV period Sevres Bowl painted by Francois Binet$1500
An elegant reminder of the importance the French court of Louis XIV, XV and XVI placed on the products of the Royal porcelain factory, this Sevres shallow bowl is decorated with floral sprays and a blue and gilt border. It has the double L monogramme of the King enclosing an O, the date letter for 1767 in blue enamel on the reverse. This is surmounted by a T with a dot above, the mark of the flower painter Francois Binet, active 1750-1775*. A retailer's sticker to the reverse shows it was sold in the past by the London firm, Klaber& Klaber, still extant. This Louis XV period dish is 21 cm wide and 4 cm deep.
