The scene depicting a young family in a richly detailed garden setting is the work of Charles-Nicolas Dodin, regarded during his lifetime as the most skilled of all the painters at Sèvres. The lavish gilding on the vase includes the decorative handles in the form of male busts, which evoke the gilt-bronze mounts employed on French furniture of the period.
