    Normally associated with the painter Dodin, such compositions were based on Boucher's work of the mid 1730s in Livre de Groupes d'Enfants. For a similarly decorated cup and saucer by Dodin, see Tamara Préaud and Antoinette Faÿ-Hallé, Porcelaines de Vincennes Les Origines de Sèvres Exhibition Catalogue, Grand Palais, Paris, 14 October 1977 - 16 January 1978, cat. no. 331.

    Charles Buteux (l'aîné, later père) was a painter of figures, trophies and flowers at Sèvres from 1756 to 1782, and Jean-Baptiste Tandart (l'aîné) was a painter of flowers from 1754 to 1800.
