Lot Essay

Dihl was known to experiment with 'grand feu' colors. Proud of the results he achieved simulating hardstones, in his portrait by Le Guay of 1797, he is shown with a pair of faux-agate vases similar in color to the present bough-pot. See R. de Plinval de Guillebon, Porcelain of Paris, 1770-1850, New York, 1972, p. 137, no. 97-98.
