Pair of Trompe L'Oeil Faïence Terrines in the Form of Cabbage Heads
c. 1750 France
Offered by Elfriede Langeloh
Period of Paul Hannong
Modelled by Johann Wilhelm Lanz
1. Ø 13,27 inch / Height 8,27 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.
