Provenance

D. M. & P. Manheim, New York;
Property of Mr. and Mrs. Claus von Bülow, sold, Sotheby's, New York, October 28, 1988, lot 165

Catalogue Note

Two similar flower-filled plates, but with purple or green drapery borders, are illustrated and discussed in Das Weisse Gold Des Nordens, pp. 94-97, no. 28, the catalogue of an exhibition of Royal Copenhagen porcelain held at the Museum Schloss Fasanerie, in 1992. The authors discuss two similar plates in the David Collection in Copenhagen, and relate plates of the present type to similar plates which were included with the original 'Flora Danica' service, those plates however bearing the distinctive beaded and serrated rim of that service. A similar plate with yellow drapery border was offered at Sotheby's, London, June 13, 1995, lot 338; and a pair, entirely in the white, and perhaps unfinished, was sold in these rooms, October 13, 1983, lot 54.
