Labels and date

Gallery 128 Decant 2003

The group was acquired as 'rue de la Rocquette, Paris, early 19th century'. Although the mark is similar to that used at Vincent Dubois' factory at the rue de la Rocquette, this factory closed in 1790, a date that is probably too early for this model. [07/06/2004]

Production Note

The group was acquired as 'rue de la Rocquette, Paris, early 19th century'. Although the mark is similar to that used at Vincent Dubois' factory at the rue de la Rocquette, this factory closed in 1790, a date that is probably too early for this model.
The mark was also used at the factory founded by Jean-Marx Clauss in rue de la Pierre-Levée in around 1820. The factory changed ownership after 3 generations, when it was acquired by Achille Bloch, during whose ownership this group was probably made. Production of its 'porcelaine de Paris' continues to this day.
