Jean-Jacques Pierre painter at Svres from 1763-1800.
The seau bears the coat-of-arms of the Lieutenant de Police, later Ministre de la Marine, Sartine. The service was traditionally given by the factory to Sartine perhaps for services rendered, since Sartine defended the privileges of the factory as the 'Manufacture Royale' against the encroachments of other French porcelain manufacturers although there is no documentary evidence to support this. The Arms are only painted on the pieces of form.
See Pierre Verlet, Porcelaines de Svres (1953), p. 216, pl. 77 for examples from this service in the Muse National de la Cramique, Svres and Marcelle Brunet and Tamara Praud, Svres, des origines nos jours (1978), p. 192, no. 204.
