An early example of Capodimonte soft-paste porcelain, produced only between 1743 and 17589. Gricci derived this group from the engravings "Le Tailleur pour Femme" by Charles Cochin le Jeune. The paste is as yet somewhat impure. The colored decoration includes oriental flower motifs and a blue border recalling the stamped decoration adopted by the Ginori factory in Doccia near Florence.
