Its peculiar form comes from Greek antiquity, where it was intended for the service of wine. Its exuberant scenery of exotic and imaginary birds is treated like an 18th-century painting, distributed on the faces on both sides, framed by a profusion of stylized vegetable motifs in gold, on the belly, the foot and the handles. A good example of the French know-how in hard porcelain.
