It is known from the factory sales records that only two vases of this form with this type of decoration were sold between 1755–57. Each sold for the impressive sum of 960 livres; one was purchased by Madame de Pompadour and the other by Count Moltke, a friend and court official to the Danish king, Frederik V.
