LOT 1150
LOT 1150
A pair of Chinese armorial export ware porcelain ewers of European silver helmet form, late Kangxi period, painted in underglaze blue with fine baroque borders beneath a moulded Neptune mask to spout, over a cartouche containing the crest of Wolff, Croachroad or Pemberton, subsequently enamelled with Kakiemon designs of fences, fabulous birds, flowers and an iron red tiger, a floret obscuring each crest, height 28.8cm (restoration). Note: the Kakiemon decoration shows characteristic loss of blue enamel in all the birds and some flowers, blue enamel adhering, however, to the flower lappets around the base, where the glaze resisted in the first firing. Presumably originally intended for export as blue and white, with a discreet armorial crest and subsequently enamelled for a wider market, whether in China or Europe. A circular dish with similarly decorated armorial is illustrated on page 189 of 'Chinese Armorial Porcelain' by David Sanctuary Howard, dating the service at 1715.
