Auction Description for Auctionata: European Antiques & Collectibles
Viewing Notes:
A preview at Auctionata on May 05/06 is only possible by prior appointment.
Sale Notes:
This auction features exquisite collector's items such as an extraordinary marble Satyr head, which draws on the classical mythology of the Roman Empire. A further highlight comes in the shape of a luxurious set of plates, which were created around 1740 by the famous Meissen manufacturer, and features fine chinoiserie designs and exuberant gold detailing. The bronze sculpture by Frenchman Arthur Jacques Le Duc is particularly charming with its depiction of three children giving each other a leg-up onto a horse

Their success was founded in part on the high volume of orders from the imperial family; Odiot manufactured the crib for the king of Rome, son of Napoleon Bonaparte, which is now in the Vienna treasure chambers. The return of antique styles and use of gilded silver had a particular influence on the decoration and production processes. The reputation of the house of Odiot had always preceded it, and soon all of Europe knew of it. Today's president Nicolas de La Mornière continues to create elegant works of extraordinary technical and artistic grade.

Upon an ornate flared, stepped foot rises a partly gilt center section adorned with sculptural musicians and their instruments as well as rich floral decorations. The handle is shaped in the form of a fire-breathing dragon. The hinged lid has the form of a Gothic canopy with delicately formed pinnacles, under which an eagle is shown feeding its brood. A figure of St. Christopher crowns the top. The base bears an ornate engraved inscription dated to the year 1913. The pitcher is in good condition with light signs of wear, the center section shows a dent. The neck is hallmarked with '800', crescent and crown as well as Neresheimer hallmark ('n').

Meissen Porcelain has been available in Europe since the 13th century, but it had to be imported from China. It was mostly of low quality, too, and came at a high price, because the Chinese seldom gave their best wares to foreigners. Europeans tried to copy Chinese porcelain for centuries. 1708 brought success - high quality porcelain could finally be manufactured in Europe; in Meissen. The manufacturer's mark, the crossed swords in blue, has been in use since 1722 and it is still a symbol of the highest quality porcelain. Meissen celebrated its 300 years anniversary in 2008. Quality has always been the number one priority for Meissen. They have their own quarry, where they source kaolin, also known as china clay, for their production. It takes several years to attain the title of a 'master painter' at Meissen. This level of professionalism is clearly evident in the remarkable quality of painting on Meissen porcelain.

Stobwasser Factory (1740-1863) The manufactory Stobwasser was established in 1740 by Georg Siegmund Eustachius Stobwasser. Georg Stobwasser started trading haberdashery; the trading of lacquered goods was introduced by his son Johann Heinrich Stobwasser in 1757. In the 1760s the Bayreuth margrave Friedrich III commissioned a large number of lacquered boxes as well as drinking vessels and cups. In 1762 the entire family Stobwasser moved to Brunswick on the wish of the Duke Carl I., who promised them some money for production, citizenship as well as free accommodation. After having a few difficulties, business soon picked up and the repertoire of lacquered goods extended. Shell pouches, drinking vessels, snuff boxes and even furniture was part of their range. In 1768 Stobwasser was commissioned to lacquer state carriage of Friedrich the Great. Thereon the company gained the sole privilege of calling their goods 'Brunswick lacquer ware'. The products were laboriously crafted from papier mâché, wood and rolled tin plate and iron sheet. To guarantee the high quality of the décor Stobwasser opened its own painting school in 1780 run by the renowned Brunswick artist Pascha Johann Friedrich Weitsch (1723-1803).
