The design of this scarf is adapted from the vase japon, a rare work by the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory based on an antique prototype. Despite its name, the vase japon is an interpretation of a Chinese bronze Yu (or Hu) vase from the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.–220 A.D.). The vase japon bears the mark of the gilder-painter Jean-Armand Fallot, who was employed by Sèvres between 1764 and 1790. The mounts bear the mark of Charles Ouizille, who, in 1784, became the official jeweler of Louis XVI.
The vase was purchased in 2011 in honor of Anne L. Poulet.
