Not on view

The two primary reserves of these vases (see also 58.75.75a, b) feature dockside scenes of sailors and merchants with barrels of cargo and the mast of a ship in the middle distance. This type of marine theme was popular at Sèvres and was a specialty of the painter Jean-Louis Morin (act. 1754–87). While neither of these vases bears the painter's mark of Morin, the decoration can be attributed to him on the basis of stylistic affinities to other works on which his mark appears.
