Sporting a laurel wreath and classical drapery, the female figure portrayed on this jar amid scrolling foliage is more detailed than the profile head on the example exhibited nearby, suggesting that this one may not have been part of the very large and more sketchily executed order for pharmaceutical containers placed with Masséot Abaquesne in 1545.
