Manufactory Vienna
Factory director Claudius Innocentius Du Paquier period Austrian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 533

Du Paquier potters clearly were familiar with Chinese teawares, as they imitated and adapted their forms. Here, both the four-cornered shape and the arched sections of the foot were copied from Chinese models. The brown ground, also Chinese in origin, is a rare example of the use of a ground color at Du Paquier; inside the cartouches are chinoiserie scenes in the Meissen style of Johann Gregorious Höroldt (1696–1775).
