Catalogue Note

A larger similarly decorated example is illustrated in David Sanctuary Howard, New York and the China Trade, New Jersey, 1984, cat. no. A15, from the collection of the Albany Institute of History and Art, and previously in the collection of Mr. John V.L. Pruyn of Albany. This example was known as the Regents Punchbowl, after the Board of Regents of New York where Mr. Pruyn was chancellor and where it was used to serve punch. Howard suggests that this particular type of decoration was popular in Europe in 1760s, and specifically ordered in China possibly through a merchant in New York. Another example of this large size and decoration, was sold in these rooms, October 28-29, 2004, lot 201, from the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords.
