Lot Details
A rare Cambrian creamware centrepiece
Circa 1805.
Of quatrelobed oval form, the interior painted in sepia tones, probably by William Weston Young, with a view of 'Howth House in the County of Dublin, the Seat of the Earl of Howth', figures in the foreground including a lady and a child walking a dog, within a border of gilded fruiting vines tied with a bow, a gilt line around the foot and rim, 32.4cm wide, impressed mark, title in neat script (damaged and restored)

Footnotes

  • The landscape is after a view in Thomas Milton's 'Views of Seats in Ireland' (1783). The 14th century Howth House, now known as Howth Castle, was remodelled in the 20th century by Sir Edwin Lutyens, although the present day facade appears to be little changed when compared to Weston Young's painting on this lot. The various Swansea services of this type and the attribution of the painting is discussed by Andrew Renton, Thomas Pardoe and William Weston Young, Welsh Ceramics in Context (2003), p 129
