Christopher Dresser Coalbrookdale 'Boreas' hall stand

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

Description: Christopher Dresser Coalbrookdale 'Boreas' hall stand cast iron, marble, with a bronzed finish highlighted in gilt, the arched back with coat hooks, pierced with stylised foliage centred by a shield above two panels depicting Boreas and Aquarius, the lower section with a marble inset above a frieze drawer, flanked by side umbrella rails and lower drip trays, the front frieze stamped 'Coalbrookdale', stamped with diamond registration mark and 'No. 239430', stamped twice 'No. 44' 230 cm high LITERATURE For a contemporary photograph of this model in the 1870 archives of the Public Records Office, London see Widar Halén, Christopher Dresser, a Pioneer of Modern Design, London, 2000, p. 75, ill. no. 65 For a hallstand of the same model see Fine 20th Century Design and an Important European Collection of Art Deco Figures, Sotheby's, London, 19 May 2010, lot 130 OTHER NOTES Christopher Dresser (1834-1904) was a pioneer of modern design and arguably Europe's first industrial designer. One of the most radical designers of the nineteenth century, he enthusiastically promoted machines and mass-production, and his prolific output embraced a wide range of styles and techniques in ceramics, glass, metalwork, furniture, carpets, textiles, wallpapers and interior decoration. Working for the leading manufacturers of the day, he was an influential writer and theorist, stressing the importance of function, simplicity, mechanical skill and the use of readily available materials. As a Professor of Botany, his naturalistic influences are clearly evident in the present work, however, the design also features figurative panels. The ornament on the hallstand back depicts Boreas, the Greek god of the North Wind, who invited winter with his icy breath. This design was registered at the Public Record Office in London on the 8th March 1870, three years after Dresser began to design for the manufacturers Coalbrookdale. This date shows that this piece was created in the same year that Dresser began his celebrated articles The Principles of Decorative Design, which were published in book form in 1873, and it also predates by several years his famed trip to Japan of 1876 and 1877, the first official visit of a European designer to Japan, as a private guest of the Japanese government. The hall stand combines the depiction of Boreas in conjunction with Aquarius, the water bearer in the zodiac. Considering Dressers' precise control of a piece's form and function it seems likely that these decorative elements are a coded allusion to the function of the piece itself, with hats, coats and umbrellas protecting the wearer from both wind and rain.

Barr Smith / WON BY / MR. [HORACE] HANDEL ALLEN'S NS. R.W.B. VIOLET / BY KING OF THE HILLS - FLY' gadrooned to the shoulder from which emanate two gadrooned volute handles centred by rosettes, flanking a waisted neck stamped 'H. STEINER', 'ADELAIDE', with crown, queen's head and lion passant to base 35 cm high PROVENANCE August Brunkhorst 1846-1919 Adelaide (retailer) The John and Jan Altmann Collection, Melbourne EXHIBITED Australian Silver 1800-1900, "Lindesay", Darling Point, Sydney, 1973, no. 97 The J. & J. Altmann Collection of Australian Silver, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2 September - 1 November 1981, no. 33 (illustrated) Australian Decorative Arts 1788-1900, Australian National Gallery, Canberra, 5 November 1988 - 5 February 1989 LITERATURE 'South Australian Coursing Club', The South Australian Advertiser, Adelaide, 20 January 1886, p. 7 The South Australian Weekly Chronicle, Adelaide, 1 May 1886, p. 14 'South Australian Coursing Club: Buckland Park Meet - May 19, 20 and 21, 1886', The South Australian Register, Adelaide, 22 May 1886, p. 7 'Sporting', The South Australian Register, Adelaide, 2 June 1886, p. 7 John Hawkins, Australian Silver 1800 - 1900, National Trust of Australia (New South Wales) Women's Committee, Sydney, 1973, pp. 72, 84 OTHER NOTES This handsome greyhound coursing cup is a rarity amidst the decorative trophies and characteristic of late 19th century presentation silver, with their complex ensembles of Aborigines, tree ferns, kangaroos, and emu eggs. In contrast to such elaborate Victorian confections, the cup displays a simpler taste, taking the form of a classical Greek volute-krater. (1) Weighing a full 45 oz., it was described in a contemporary newspaper as 'massive though of chaste proportions'; (2) it is in fact an enlarged version of a similar gold cup presented by Robert Barr Smith to the Adelaide Hunt Club in 1885. Barr Smith, who also donated this trophy, was a leading figure in the colony's pastoral, mining, shipping and finance industries, a philanthropist and a sportsman. In addition to various equine enthusiasms, he was also a 'lover of the leash' (3), and was President of the South Australian Coursing Club, (though in the 1886 Waterloo Cup his own dog, Valentine Vox, was defeated in the first tie). From its stamps, it seems the cup was designed and manufactured by Henry Steiner (1835-1914), but it was retailed by August Ludwig Brunkhorst (1846-1919), another well-known Adelaide German silversmith, who took over Steiner's business and stock-in-trade when the latter sold up in 1884. (4) It was formerly owned by the late John and Jan Altmann, much of whose collection of Australian silver was presented to the National Gallery of Victoria through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. We gratefully acknowledge the kind assistance of John McPhee in cataloguing this work. Dr David Hansen (1) The adoption of a neoclassical manner amongst South Australia's German silversmiths in this period may be a response to Heinrich Schliemann's excavations at Troy, Mycenae and Tyrins, which were published (in German) through the 1870s. Steiner's Adelaide Hunt Club Cup (1878, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide) was described in one contemporary newspaper as 'of antique shape, similar to a cup found by Mr Schlieman [sic] on the supposed site of Troy.' ('Adelaide Hunt Club Steeplechases', The South Australian Advertiser, Adelaide, 25 September 1882, p. 6). (2) The South Australian Weekly Chronicle, Adelaide, 1 May 1886, p. 14 (3) 'South Australian Coursing Club', The South Australian Advertiser, Adelaide, 20 January 1886, p. 7 (4) Alternatively, it may have been made by Brunkhorst, but stamped by Steiner as retailer (or by Brunkhorst, using Steiner's marks). John Hawkins notes that 'it is unclear whether Brunkhorst worked for Steiner before 1884 but the products of Steiner's former business, when in the hands of Brunkhorst, are more classical in design.' (John Hawkins, Nineteenth Century Australian Silver, Antique Collectors' Club, Woodbridge, U.K., 1990, p. 175) PROPERTY FROM THE ESTATE OF THE LATE DR JAN ALTMANN, MELBOURNE
