Lot Details
A Du Paquier Hausmaler teabowl and saucer, circa 1730
Painted in Schwarzlot heightened in gilding, probably by a Viennese or Bohemian Hausmaler in the manner of Ignaz Preissler, with battle scenes depicting, on the saucer, cavalry engaged in close combat, and a continuous landscape scene depicting cavalry and soldiers firing cannon at a beseiged town, the inside with a trophy composed of canon, flags a helmet and cannon balls (2)


  • A similarly decorated teabowl and saucer, probably by the same painter, was in the Georg Tillmann Collection, Hamburg, published by G. Pazaurek, Die Deutsche Fayence- und Porzellan-Hausmaler (1925), I, ill. 218. Pazaurek tentatively attributed the decoration to a Vienna Hausmaler of around 1730 (p. 245). Two further similarly decorated teabowls and saucers are published by A. Müller-Hofstede, Der Schlesisch-Böhmische Hausmaler Ignaz Preissler, in Keramos 100 (1983), p. 28, ills. 39 and 39a, where the decoration is attributed to Ignaz Preissler.
