Strasbourg faience
Period of Paul Hannong
About 1750
Modelled by Johann Wilhelm Lanz

1. Ø 13,27 inch / Height 8,27 inch
2. Ø 14,50 inch / Height 9,84 inch

The terrines derive from the blooming time of the Strasbourg manufactory. The important moulder and initiator Johann Wilhelm Lanz, to whom the trompe l'œuils can be ascribed, had just started his work in Strasbourg. At the time such terrines where part of baronial hunting services, e.g. the one of Margravine of Baden, which is still today exposed in Schloss Favorite in Raststatt, or the Clemenswerther hunting service of the Elector Clemens August of Cologne. In this early time of their production those individually hand modeled cabbage terrines did not carry a mark underneath. Especially such terrines large in size are extremely rare.
Both cabbage heads are in a good condition. Inside of one is a craquele pattern. In a small number of cases chips on the edges of the leaves. No restoration.
