Lot Details
A rare English porcelain teabowl attributed to Vauxhall, circa 1755
A rare English porcelain teabowl attributed to Vauxhall, circa 1755
Made as a replacement or 'matching' for a Meissen service, painted in purple camaieu with a continuous Kauffahrtei scene depicting merchants and their wares by a quayside, the interior with indianische Blumen within a iron-red double-line border, with a gilt border to the rim with alternating star and scroll motif, 8.3cm diam (minute rim chips)

Footnotes

  • This teabowl was produced as a replacement for a Meissen service of circa 1730, which was offered for sale in these rooms on 12 December 2012, lot 39. The paste and glaze and the appearance of the gilding strongly suggests that this replacement teabowl was made at Vauxhall. It therefore shows that the original Meissen set was in England prior to the mid-1750s

Saleroom notices

  • There is a hairline crack to the rim of the teabowl, not mentioned in the catalogue.
