Description The pot bears the mark of Louis-Jean Thévenet, a painter of flowers active at the factory from 1741 to 1777.
The sugar bowl is intact but the lid has been broken roughly in half and repaired in the past. The old repairs were deteriorated. Old repairs were removed and replaced with conservation quality materials.
