  • Paris, anonymous, third quarter of the eighteenth century.
  • Glass cooler, oval flat bottom, the castellated top edge that can hold the foot of the glasses, it is called "verrière". We find eployed on it items that made the success of "Chinese" style under Louis XV's reign : pagoda, tree and Chinese, naively treated in polychrome tones where gold dominates.
  • Many workshops and stores specializing in lacquered metal were opened after the end of the Seven Years' War (1763) to respond to a craze for English articles as those of Pontypool's factory which knew a real success in France. To meet demand and imports, two factories were opened: La Petite Pologne and La Veuve Gosse. If La Petite Polognehas closed after three years,La Veuve Gosse owed its survival to the production of locks, as for lacquer production lasted until the eve of the Revolution through Mr.Granchez , "Marchand-mercier" of the famous store Au Petit Dunkerque.
