London, United Kingdom

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

Description: A PORTRAIT MINIATURE OF EDWARD MONTAGU FIRST EARL OF SANDWICH, ATTRIBUTED TO CHARLES BEALE (1660-1714), CIRCA 1680 after Sir Peter Lely (1618-1680), with long brown hair and wearing the cape and Order of the Garter, watercolour on vellum, in a rose turned horn frame, titled label to reverse 7.5cm high For oil versions of the portrait after Lely see the National Portrait Gallery (NPG 609) and Plas Newydd, Anglesey (National Trust No.1175959). Lely was a friend of Charles Beale's parents and Beale made a number of copies of Lely portraits; see Victoria and Albert Museum (No.555-1905) for a Beale miniature after Lely's self-portrait. Edward Montagu (1625-1672) was deeply involved with the parliamentary cause during the Civil War, raising an infantry regiment and later serving in the Protectorate parliament. Seeing the way the wind was blowing however, he became involved with Charles II in exile in the Netherlands and commanded the fleet that brought the King back for the restoration in May 1660. He was created Earl of Sandwich two months later. A cousin of Samuel Pepys, he is considered as Pepys's protector at the Admiralty, where he was Lord High Admiral of England.

Description: Portrait of Lady Fanny Montagu (d. 1788), full-length, in a white bridesmaid's dress, holding a coin in her right hand, in an interior with inscription 'Lady Fanny/Montagu/Daughter of the/Rt Hon:ble Georg/Earl of Halifax/one of the/Bride Maids in ye/Habit that She/attended Her/Royall Highness/the Princess Royal/att Her Marriage/wth ye Prince of/Orange in/1733/after wards/Married to Sir/Roger Burgoyne/Bart:' (centre right) oil on canvas 94 x 541/2 in. (238.7 x 138.4 cm.) NOTES The sitter was the eldest daughter of George, 4th Earl of Halifax and his second wife, Lady Mary Lumley, eldest daughter of Richard, 1st Earl of Scarbrough. She married Sir Roger Burgoyne, 6th Bt. (d. 1780), M.P. for Bedford, in 1739. Lady Fanny is portrayed in the bridesmaid's dress she wore at the marriage between Anne, Princess Royal (1709-1759), eldest daughter of King George II, and William IV, Prince of Orange, which took place on the evening of 14 March 1734. The petticoat of the gown takes the form of tiered scalloped flounces, and from the bodice falls a train caught back to reveal the petticoat beneath. The sleeves are composed of a series of tiered ruffles. While such stiff bodied gowns were customary wear for female members of the Royal Family and their immediate attendants on the most formal ceremonial occasions, the distinctive arrangement of flowers on the petticoat is more unusual. Mary Glanville, Mrs Delaney describes the dresses worn by the bridesmaids in rather general terms, recording that they were 'white and silver', and that the maids had 'great quantities of jewels in their hair'. The ceremony was performed at the French Chapel adjoining St. James's House which for the occasion was connected with King George II's apartment in St. James's House by a covered Gallery holding four thousand people, through which the marriage procession passed. John, Lord Hervey, who organised the procession, gives a lively account of the event in his memoirs: 'The Chapel was fitted up with an extreme good taste and as much finery as velvets, gold and silver tissue, galloons, fringes, tassels, gilt lustres and sconces could give. The king spared no expense on this occasion'. He commented, however, that the scene 'looked more like the mournful pomp of a sacrifice than the joyful celebration of a marriage...' (see Lord Hervey's Memoirs, Ed. R. Sedgwick, London, 1952, pp. 56-100). The scene is recorded in an engraving by J. Rigaud after William Kent.

Description: Portrait of Martha Ray (c. 1745-1779), seated three-quarter-length, in a pink dress with a blue sash, holding a musical score, in a landscape signed and dated 'N Dance pt. 1777' (on the score) oil on canvas, unframed 50 x 40 in. (127 x 101.6 cm.) PROVENANCE Possibly the Earl of Sandwich. H.E. Ovitts; Christie's, 25 June 1904, lot 49 (85 gns. to Gooden & Fox). Ernest Closuit, Forth Worth. A.H. Rowan, Fort Worth. A Private American Collection. ENGRAVED V. Green, 1779. Exhibition catalogue, George Dance, London, The Iveagh Bequest, Kenwood, 1977, under no. 41 (described as 'untraced'). NOTES The sitter, described by a contemporary authority as 'uncommonly elegant, and her voice musical in a high degree', was a celebrated and respected singer. Her right arm is resting on a book inscribed 'Jeptha' - the title of an oratorio with verse by Thomas Morell and music by Handel, which was published seven times between 1752 and 1780, and often performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden. The daughter of a London stay-maker, Martha Ray was, from about the age of eighteen, the mistress of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, by whom she had several children including Basil Montagu, the writer and philanthropist. On 7 April 1779 she was shot and killed by a besotted admirer and former army officer, the Rev. James Hackmann, in the Piazza of Covent Garden, as she was leaving the theatre and stepping into Lord Sandwich's carriage. Hackmann then attempted to kill himself but failed and was subsequently found guilty of murder and hung. In his defence he declared that, though he had determined to kill himself, the murder of Miss Ray was not premeditated. On being asked for his pardon, Lord Sandwich sent Hackman word that as he 'look'd upon his horrid action as an act of frenzy, he forgave it, that he received the stroke as coming from Providence which he ought to submit to, but that he had robb'd him of all comfort in this world' ( Autobiography and correspondence of Mary Granville, Mrs Delany, edit. Lady Llanover, vol. II, 1862, pp. 423-4).

(9.5cm.) high 7oz. (246gr.) PROVENANCE John, 1st Marquess of Monthermer (d.1749), later 2nd Duke of Montagu, and thence by descent to his granddaughter Lady Eizabeth Montagu (d.1827), who married Henry, 3rd Duke of Buccleuch and 5th Duke of Queesberry (1746-1812) and thence by descent to A Nobleman; Sotheby's London, 24 April 1952, lot 161 (œ2,600) Nathaniel Mayer Victor, 3rd Baron Rothschild (1910-1990) LITERATURE V. Brett, The Sotheby's Director of Silver, London, 1986, illustrated no. 633 M. Clayton, The Collector's Dictionary of Silver and Gold of Great Britain and North America, Woodbridge, 1985, p. 155, illustrated fig. 153. EXHIBITION London, Victoria and Albert Museum, 1997-2000 NOTES John, Marquess of Monthermer Lord John Montagu (1688/89-1749) was the third but eldest surviving son of Ralph, 1st Duke of Montagu (1638-1709). His eldest brother, Ralph died before 1689 and the second brother Winwood in 1702 in Flanders while travelling from Hanover. Lord John then became Marquess of Monthermer. In 1704 he married Mary, daughter and co-heir of the great John, 1st Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722), by his formidable wife Sarah, daughter and co-heir of Richard Jennings. His mother-in-law was later to write to Lord Stair that 'All my son-in-law's talents lie in things only natural in boys of fifteen and he is about two and fifty. To get people into his gardens and wet them with squirts, to invite people to his country house and put things in their beds to make them itch, and twenty such other pretty fancies' (The Duchess of Marlborough to Lord Stair, Horace Walpole, Letters, vol. 1, p.339). While he certainly took great delight in surprising his guests with concealed fountains and other such practical jokes, his many interests and appointments show a degree of gravitas and erudition way beyond the image of him portrayed by the writings of his mother-in-law and, later, Horace Walpole. He spent time with the Duke of Marlborough during one of his campaigns and later commanded the 1st Troop of Horse Guards and the 3rd Regiment of Horse. He showed great interest in the practicalities of warfare, demonstrated by the seriousness with which he regarded his post as Master General of Ordnance. On a more personal level he created an armoury at Boughton, the Northamptonshire seat he had inherited from his father. Although his attempt to colonise the islands of St. Vincent and St. Kitts, which he had been granted by King George I, proved disastrous, he lost some œ40,000 in the attempt, his interest in the sugar trade was sound. A flattering image of him was painted by the antiquary the Reverend William Stukeley (1687-1765) in his memoirs. He describes the Duke as showing '...modesty, mercy, humanity, openess, loyalty and courage' and implied that these were qualities they shared due to their '...similitude of disposition'. He shared Stukeley's antiquarian interest in Gothic architecture. John Cornforth in his chapter 'Boughton: Impressions and People' in T. Murdoch ed, Boughton House, The English Versailles, London, 1992, p. 23, notes that he undertook historicist repairs of the late 13th century Eleanor Cross at Geddington, Northmaptonsire, and also to Palce House, Beaulieu. His enthusiasm for heraldry and the history of the Montagu family is displayed in the room which is now the library at Boughton. It is decorated with the coats-of-arms of the original Knights of the Garter, Montagu having been installed as a knight of that order in 1718. The pedigree over the fireplace illustrates the descent of the Montagu and Percy families from King Edward I. His delight in fountains extended far beyond the 'squirts' mentioned by the Duchess of Marlborough. He added to his father's work on the gardens and waterworks at Boughton, employing John Topping as 'Engineer & Surveyor of my Waterworks at Boughton' in 1723. His greatest single architectural commission was the new Montagu House, the Privy Garden, Whitehall, designed and built by Henry Flitcroft (1697-1769) between 1727 and 1732. His marriage to the Lady Mary Churchill (1689-1751) took place in St. James's in January 1705/6 and it would seem likely that the gold cream-jug was a wedding gift. Although the couple had three sons all died young. The two surviving daughters were therefore the Duke's heirs. However, the Duchess was more favourably disposed to her younger daughter, Lady Mary (1711-1775), wife of George, 4th Earl of Cardigan (1712-1790) and as much of the estate as possible was left to her under the proviso that her husband took the name of Montagu. This was laid down in a private Act of Parliament which was passed in the early 1740s. He Lady Mary's marriage to Lord Cardigan produced a son, created Lord Montagu of Boughton who died unmarried in 1770. The Cardigan estates and chattels passed to Lord Cardigan's brother, while Boughton and the Montagu chattels where inherited by their daughter Elizabeth (d.1827), wife of Henry 3rd Duke of Buccleuch (1746-1812). David Willaume The second Duke's father has patronised the Huguenot goldsmith, David Willaume in the first years of the 18th century. The surviving Boughton House accounts kept by Mr Derits for the years 1698-1704 record: '2.9.1701 To David Willaume in full for plate œ29.15... 2.12.1704 To David Williams [sic] in full to this day œ37.8.10' and those of Mr Antonie for the years 1706-7: '26.3.1707 To Mr David Willaume for plate as pr Bill & Receipt 22.12.1719 To David Willaume, silver smyth œ140' It not surprising therefore that Willaume was chosen as the maker of the gold cream jug, whether by the 1st Duke as a wedding gift to his son or perhaps by John, 2nd Duke to present to his wife after their marriage. David Willaume was one of the leading silversmiths of the early 18th century and numbered some of the greatest aristocrats of the age as his patrons. A. Grimwade in London Goldsmiths, 1697-1837, Their Marks and Their Lives, London, 1982, pp.703-704 states it to be impossible to single one pre-eminent masterpiece amongst his surviving work. His long career, which stretched from the late 17th century to his retirement in 1728, included a remarkable number of major works. The Monthemer cream-jug would appear to be his only work in gold to be recorded, although his son, also David, produced the Conyers Gold Cup of 1732 (see E. A. Jones, Old English Gold Plate, London, 1907, p. 19, illustrated pl. XXI) and the Walpole Cup of 1739, (exhibited London, Christie's, The Glory of the Goldsmith, Magnificent Gold and Silver from the Al-Tajir Collection, London, 1989, no. 78, illustrated).

Phillips) Purchased by John, 2nd Baron Montagu of Beaulieu (1866-1929) and thence by descent NOTES Ralph Montagu was born in 1638, the second son of Edward Montagu, second Lord Montagu of Boughton and Anne, daughter of Sir Ralph Winwood, knight. His career as courtier and diplomat began early as Master of the Horse to the Duchess of York. At the death of his elder brother Edward in 1665 he succeeded to the position of Master of the Horse to Queen Catherine. He became a popular figure at the court of Charles II, distinguishing himself by his gallantry and his affairs with notable beauties of the day. On 1 January 1669 Montagu was appointed Ambassador Extraordinary to the court of Louis XIV, the first of a succession of such appointments. He lost no time in establishing himself as a friend of the Duchess of Orleans, whose knowledge of the intricacies of the French court assisted him in his diplomatic career. During this tenure he attempted to secure his future at the English Court by purchasing the Mastership of the Great Wardrobe from his cousin, Edward Montagu, 1st Earl of Sandwich (1625-1672) for œ14,000, a position which promised great power and influence as well as pecuniary rewards. Upon his return in January 1672 King Charles II appointed him to the Privy Council. Montagu seems to have made an enemy of the powerful Duke of Buckingham, against whom the king sometimes backed him, but once sent him to the Tower for a few days when their quarrel encroached into the king's own drawing-room. Montagu's career progressed and at Titchfield, Hampshire on 24 August 1673 he married Elizabeth Wriothesley, daughter of Thomas, Earl of Southampton and widow of Joceline Percy, 11th Earl of Northumberland, a great heiress who is said to have numbered Charles II himself, the king's natural son the future Duke of Grafton, and the Duke of York among her suitors. Montagu returned to France as Ambassador Extraordinary and again spent much time in planning his future, striking a bargain with Secretary of State Henry Coventry by offering to pay him œ10,000 for his position. These plans came to naught as consent from others was needed and this was not forthcoming; and worse was to come. His former friend the Duchess of Cleveland denounced him to the king, and this was strengthened by accusations of corruption by the Earl of Danby as well as by the king's personal astrologer, causing his fall from favour. He was replaced as ambassador and fell back upon a safe seat in the House of Commons representing the county of Huntingdon, while planning his revenge against those whom he felt had wronged him. This took the form of contracting with the French ambassador to cause the ruin of his principal accuser in exchange for a substantial pension. These private events were overtaken by the dissolution of Parliament in 1678, which caused Montagu to go into hiding. He used the occasion to back Monmouth's cause, hoping to get him declared Prince of Wales under the theory that a disputed succession in England would be an advantage to France. He was certainly opportunistic; Swift characterised him as 'as arrant a knave as any in his time.' When these intrigues finally collapsed and he was unable to re-establish himself in any position of power at the English court, he returned to France, in part to secure payment for his past services. Once again, greater events overtook his personal plans and on 10 January 1683-4 he succeeded his father as 3rd Lord Montagu of Boughton. As such, he fully intended to attend the coronation of James II in 1685 and was, somewhat surprisingly, welcomed by the king, although he lost the position of Master of the Wardrobe to Lord Preston and the king refused to see him personally. With the Glorious Revolution of 1689 Montagu threw his support behind William III and was again created Privy Councillor, and in addition made Viscount Monthermer and Earl of Montagu on 9 April 1689, as well as being restored as Master of the Wardrobe, albeit assisted in that restoration by a lawsuit. It is at this time that the present flagons may have been presented to Montagu, as they are engraved with the arms of the Earl of Montagu. His wife having died in 1690 he began to court the 'very rich and very mad' Elizabeth Cavendish (d. 1734), eldest daughter of Henry Cavendish, 2nd Duke of Newcastle, and widow of Christopher Monck, 2nd Duke of Albemarle, an heiress of some œ7000 per annum who declared she would only marry a crowned head. Ever resourceful, Montagu solved this dilemma by pretending to be the Emperor of China, and they were married in September, 1692, triggering a tumultuous series of lawsuits relating to her Albemarle inheritance which consumed the better part of seven years. Once again established as a courtier, Montagu now began to press his claim to a dukedom, a goal which was not attained until his son John married Lady Mary Churchill, youngest daughter of the Duke of Marlborough, in 1705, upon which occasion Montagu was raised to the title of Duke of Montagu. Having at last attained his coveted dukedom Montagu died just a few years afterwards, on 9 March 1708-9. Montagu's town residence, Montagu House in Bloomsbury, was designed by Robert Hooke in the French style. Destroyed by fire but rebuilt, it was purchased in 1753 by the government to house the British Museum, but was demolished a century later. At his country home, Boughton House in Northamptonshire, 'contrived after the model of Versailles', Montagu went further, and strove to re-create, insofar as possible, the residences and gardens he had known and admired in France. Doubtless too, in his often insecure political standing in England it was comfortable to be reminded of Versailles, whose fountains played for him by order of Louis XIV whenever he went there. His business sense combined with an interest in the decorative arts is nowhere better illustrated than in his purchase of the Mortlake tapestry workshops in 1674. Certainly his personal fortune was prospering, for when he had assumed the Mastership of the Wardrobe in 1671 the remuneration was already the vast sum of œ20,000, but this had doubled within two years. As was the custom, part of a councillor's display of wealth, stature and power took the form of plate, and Montagu was not a man to neglect these perquisites of his position. New regalia is known to have been created for the coronation of Charles II in 1661 and it would seem very likely that the present flagons were employed as a part of the ceremonial representation of the wealth of the king at banquets celebrating the coronation. Inventory of the Standing Wardrobe carried out in 1688, when Lord Preston was still Master, entitled An Inventory of all his Mats Jewells Gold Gilt and White Plate which are either in the charge and custody of his Mats Jewell House or in the charge of the aforesaid Office & in the Custody of Other persons & Officers contains reference to gilt plate extant in the Office with a total weight of 8,476ozs. Sadly no inventory listing the royal plate with weights survives. Such a list would make a firm identification of the flagons as having been from the Royal Plate collection possible. The maker's mark of an orb and cross appears on precious few pieces from the 1660s. A set of four salts, known as the St. George Salts, are in the Royal Plate collection at the Tower of London. Dating from circa 1660, they are struck with a very similar maker's mark, as is the Maundy dish, hallmarked for 1660.

Description: Comprising four side chairs and a stool, each chair with serpentine padded back and rectangular seat upholstered in green and white flocked cotton damask, on ribbed trumpet-form legs and shaped feet joined by curved X-form stretchers; the rectangular stool on matching supports --width of stool --21 in. (53 cm.) (5) Kimbolton Castle, Huntingdonshire, a medieval home, was the final residence of Catherine of Aragon, first wife of Henry VIII and daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain. She died there in 1536. In 1683, the house came into the possession of Charles Montagu, 4th Earl and later 1st Duke of Manchester, as descended from his grandfather, Sir Henry Montagu. Under the direction of Sir John Vanbrugh, the house was remodelled in the current fashion in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Vanbrugh, a much respected architect and playwright, was also responsible for the remodelling of Castle Howard and Bleinheim Palace (Country Life, 23 September 1911, pp. 440-448 and 30 September 1911, pp. 474-486). The 4th Earl also set about refurnishing Kimbolton in the contemporary style. The four chairs and stool in this lot were originally part of a suite comprising six chairs and two stools which furnished the State Bedroom. Part of the suite and a matching table is illustrated in H. A. Tipping, op. cit., p. 298, figs. 374 and 375. The chairs are in the Franco-Italian manner popularized by William III's architect Daniel Marot and published in his Oeuvres in 1703. Charles Montagu's cousin, Ralph Montagu, as Master of the Great Wardrobe for William III, was responsible for the furnishing of Hampton Court and the introduction of the state style in the new French manner. Other chairs at Kimbolton relate to furniture commissioned for Hampton Court. It is likely that the Earl had commissioned this suite following his trip to Italy in 1697-1698 while serving as Ambassador to Venice. The original sage green and yellow cut-velvet slip coverings and matching window curtains were also probably purchased during this tour. However, the State Apartments were not remodelled until 1708, during the Earl's second trip to Venice. Vanbrugh wrote to him in Venice that he hopes the Earl "will find the apartment within worthy of the good furniture your Lordship has provided for it." Apparently, the Earl extended the favour of ordering fine Italian velvets to his friends on his second trip. A letter dated 6 July 1708 from Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, concerns the ordering of velvet for Blenheim. All six chairs and a single stool were offered in the Kimbolton Castle sale coducted by Knight, Frank & Rutley. Subsequently, the two other chairs and second stool were sold at Sotheby's London, 10 November 1989, lot 38. These pieces retained their original slip-on velvet coverings. The offered pieces have only been reupholstered once since the late 17th century.
