The design and decoration of this large vase reflect the influence of France's Sèvres factory on Chelsea porcelain in the 1760s. The dark blue ground color, the elaborate gilding, and the painted scene copying a work by the French artist François Boucher (1703–1770) are characteristic of porcelain produced at Sèvres, the royal manufactory that was preeminent in Europe in the mid-18th century.
