This is a replica piece. Nicholas Sebastian Adam (1705-1778) made this spectacular model in Paris in 1745 as part of a set of four, each denoting a season. They were designed for the Royal gardens of Choisy laid out by the architect Andre-Jacques Gabriel. The "Autumn" vase was later given by Louis XV to the Marquis de Marigny, brother of the Madame de Pompadour, and placed in his gardens at Menars. The original now resides in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.
