A Sevres salad bowl with lobed and slightly ruffled edge in the “feuille de choux” pattern decorated with sprigs of flowers in the bowl and on the outside with the raised pattern outlined in blue and gilt. The interlaced “L”s enclose the letter “F” for the date 1758. The heart in overglaze blue is the painter’s mark, Antoine-Louis Fontelliau. The inside of the foot rim has the hole from firing. The bowl is approx. 2 (5 cm) inches tall and 8 ¾ (22 cm) inches diameter.

Condition: no chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. A few knife scratches and minor wear to the gilding and blue outlining enamel.

The use of yellow and orange in the flowers give this bowl a light feel.
