Designed to hold two candles each, this pair of vases would have formed part of a garniture of similarly decorated vessels. The decoration on these vessels--pink and green ground colors and scenes based on seventeenth-century paintings--typifies the Rococo style used at the Sèvres porcelain manufactory around 1760. Charles-Nicolas Dodin based the rustic scene of a standing couple on a painting by the Flemish artist David Teniers the Younger.
