This pair of sweetmeat dishes is a remarkable example of the outstanding technical skill of the artist Jacquart and may be compared with Jean-Baptiste-Claude Odiot. This model in the shape of a ‘cassolette à l’antique’, is a striking example of the neo classicism perfection achieved during the imperial era.
