Duplessis, Jean-Claude, the Elder (Italian-French designer, goldsmith, ca. 1695-1774)

Note: The multi-talented Jean-Claude Duplessis was already an important sculptor, designer, goldsmith, and bronze worker in Italy before he moved to Paris in about 1740. In France he continued working as a goldsmith and gilt bronze founder and was appointed orfèvre du roi (Goldsmith to the King) in 1758. From about 1748, Duplessis expanded his range of activities by producing designs for the Vincennes Porcelain Manufactory. He also supervised the work of the throwers and molders, advised on ground colors, and even supplied gilt bronze stands for some of the porcelain vessels. He principally designed vases and vessels for tea, but he also experimented constantly, creating new shapes and forms for vases, cups, and figure groups.
