For a plateau Hébert of corresponding form, see the Wadsworth Atheneum Collection, accession no. 1917.1022. By 1753 the plateau Hébert was being made in two sizes, both with and without handles.
The handles were also of two forms, one plain with foliated terminals, and the other reeded with looped and foliated terminals. This tray has handles of the latter type. Models for both survive at the Sèvres Manufactory.
