The present vase entered the saleroom at Sèvres on 7 May 1912. Described as Vase d’Angers de 1m10 PN pate gravure et sous couvert L’Offrande à la Beauté’, 2500 francs of the 3510 francs it cost to produce the vase went to d’Eaubonne for its decoration [Vr’1e serie, No 7, Fol. 140vo].
Lucien Jules Clément d’Eaubonne is recorded as a painter at Sèvres 1902-1914 where his designs in pâte-sur-pâte were thought to be "particularly original" and often inspired by Breton genre scenes. His works are almost always rendered within a rectangular panel, so having the full, continuous view on the present vase is quite unusual. See B. Bumpus, Pâte-sur-Pâte, The Art of Ceramic Relief Decoration, 1849-1992, London, 1992, p. 46 and p. 220.
Henri Louis Laurent Ulrich is recorded as a gilder at Sèvres active 1879-1925.
