A soft-paste French porcelain part tea-service applied with similar flowers and attributed tentatively to Sceaux, was sold by Christie's Paris on 16-17 April 2008, lot 352. See Serge Gauthier, Les Porcelainiers du XVIIIe siècle Française, Lausanne, 1964, pp. 135-137 for examples of Mennecy vases with closely related applied and painted flowers and foliage. A pot-pourri vase, attributed to Mennecy, with similar applied flowers and leaves to those on the present lot was sold by Christie's New York on 21 Nov 2008, lot 159. The ground rims of these vases may suggest that they may once have been mounted.
