Portrait medallions based on jasperware examples made in England at Wedgwood were produced simultaneously in France at various Paris factories and at Sèvres. Those at Sèvres were often modelled by Jean-Charles-Nicolas Brachard aîné (1766-1846), recorded at the factory as a sculptor 1782 - 1800 with a brief sojourn as a painter 1791-1795.
Several Sèvres portrait medallions in the Wedgwood style similar to the present example are in the collection of the British Museum. See Aileen Dawson, French Porcelain, A Catalogue of the British Museum Collection, London, 1994, nos. 168-172. A Brachard portrait of the Duke of Wellington from The Pompey Collection was sold in these rooms 23 May 2002, lot 101.
