  • These nine pocelain plaques are mounted in a gilt-bonze clock case (for the clock, see F265). All of them are painted with turquoise-blue borders enclosing panels of gilt trellis-work and with white reserves painted with flowers. The plaques are possibly made in hard paste, as late eighteenth-century imitations of Sèvres porcelain.
