The Frick Collection Market Tote

The design on this tote is adapted from a soft-paste porcelain plaque made around 1783 at the Royal Manufactory of Sèvres in France. The sumptuous painted bouquet of cut flowers, which includes roses, ranunculi, cornflowers, morning glories, and campanulas, is said to be the work of Edmé-François Bouillat (French, 1758–1810). The plaque was commissioned at the manufactory by Dominique Daguerre, a renowned French marchand-mercier (merchant of luxury goods), who played an important role in the design of pieces of furniture decorated with such Sèvres porcelain plaques. This plaque is on display in the lower section of a gilt-bronze tripod table in The Frick Collection.
