The design of this exquisite and delicate 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.
