Tureen: 29.2cm high, 34.9 cm wide
The oval silver-shaped tureen and stand with ‘damask’d’ or ‘Gotzkowsky’ floral moulding, painted with flowers, butterflies and insects surmounted by a recumbent stag finial. The inside painted with dead game including a pheasant, hare, partridge and mallard.
The floral moulding and stag finial are taken directly from Meissen, the form of the tureen is adapted.
Surprisingly few tureens survive from early Chelsea dinner services, perhaps it was considered more practical to make them of silver. Patricia Ferguson has published the three known tureens in different sizes described as ‘in the wrought pattern with Landskips’ all surmounted by finial of a boy huntsman with a dog, and cites the only recorded example matching ours in the Birmingham Museum of Art, Birmingham, Alabama. A pair of very similar stands from a private collection are illustrated in Chelsea Porcelain, Elizabeth Adams, 2001, fig 8.1
