A drawing by Jean-Charles Leloy kept in the archives of Sèvres-Cité de la Céramique and illustrated by Tamara Préaud, The Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory, Alexandre Brongniart and the Triumph of Art and Industry, 1800-1847, 1998, n° 49, p. 231, presents some versions. Another drawing, closer to our model but with a Greek frieze and no posts, is kept in the archives of Sèvres-Cité de la Céramique (Inv. MNCS Vb4-1819-Services de table). Selected for Louis XVIII's table at the Palais des Tuileries, part of it was finally delivered on the order of 9 January 1820 (Inv. MNCS Vbb 6 f° 46) and some of the pieces were presented at the Louvre Exhibition from 1820 to 1821 with the description Fond du bord des assiettes and ornamentation imitating agates or chalcedonies engraved in cameos. On each piece, one or more flowers of the Liliaceae plant family, painted after the colorful engravings of M. Redouté by M. Drouet; the volume and plate of this publication are inscribed on the back of the plate.
