An extremely rare Chelsea 'Hans Sloane' botanical soup tureen and cover c.1755,

Lot 1: An extremely rare Chelsea 'Hans Sloane' botanical soup tureen and cover c.1755,

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: An extremely rare Chelsea 'Hans Sloane' botanical soup tureen and cover c.1755, the body of globular form with two green branch handles issuing sprays of forget-me-nots, painted in typically rich botanical style with carrots and radishes with large leaves, gooseberries and cherries amongst various insects including a caterpillar, butterflies, a ladybird and others, the reverse with an artichoke and leaves, onions and berries amongst similar insect life, the lobed circular cover with reeded loop handle decorated in similar style with beetroot, asparagus tips, cucumbers and white radish surrounded by insects including a butterfly, moth and bumblebee, unmarked, 14 3/4in. (37.5cm.) diameter, 10 1/4in. (26cm.) high, small chip to rim, crack to one side. * This tureen is believed to have been purchased as part of a set of Chelsea 'Hans Sloane' style botanical porcelain, at an auction at 'Lady Headfords' held by Stokes and Quirke of 33 Kildare Street, Dublin, on 19th September 1944. The items were described as '13 Floral Plates', sold as one lot for £44.2s. A copy of the original purchase invoice dated 27th September 1944 is included with this lot. The vendor's mother, Mrs. J. M. Burkhardt, purchased the Chelsea porcelain with her wedding money, which raised eyebrows amongst friends and family alike! The thirteen plates described on the invoice are also included as lots 2 to 14 in The Burkhardt Collection catalogue. John C. Austin notes in his 1977 book 'Chelsea Porcelain at Williamsburg' that an advertisement in Faulkner's Dublin Journal, 1 - 4 July, 1758 announced the importation into Dublin of "...Three fine tureens.....one in curious plants, with table plates, soup plates and desart plates enamelled from Sir Hans Sloan's (sic) plants". The advertisement was for an auction at Mr. Young's Room, on Cork Hill and was one of several sales that was held to disperse the factory's stock which had fallen behind current London tastes. This advertisement may refer directly to this tureen and thirteen soup plates, purchased by Mrs. Burkhardt 186 years later in the same city. Interestingly, it is this advertising reference which led to the wider use of the term 'Hans Sloane' to describe Chelsea wares bearing this style of decoration.

The advertisement was for an auction at Mr. Young's Room, on Cork Hill and was one of several sales that was held to disperse the factory's stock which had fallen behind current London tastes. This advertisement may refer directly to this set of thirteen soup plates and the tureen featured as lot 1 in our catalogue, purchased by Mrs. Burkhardt 186 years later in the same city. Interestingly, it is this advertising reference which led to the wider use of the term 'Hans Sloane' to describe Chelsea wares bearing this style of decoration.
