A dish (from the Musée de la Compagnie des Indes) was at the exhibition “La Chine à Versailles” in 2014.
Only two armorial services were exposed, the service of Philibert Orry (see entries no. 32 et no. 33 of the catalogue of the exhibition), and the service of the King Louis XV.
The same dish is illustrated by Louis Mézin in Cargaisons de Chine, 2002, p. 162, no. 133
