Robineau used tiny molded test pots, like this example, to experiment with new glazes. She was so pleased with this vase that she carved for it a petite porcelain stand and cover, glazed to resemble carved wood or cast metal. Occasionally she offered the test pots for sale, with or without stands and covers.
