Catalogue Note

For a discussion of this service, which may have formed part of a purchase by the Parisian marchand-mercier Simon-Philippe Poirier, see David Peters, Sèvres Plates and Services of the 18th Century, Vol. II, p. 437-40, where the present ice cups are discussed, pp. 439-40. The pattern was copied at the Derby manufactory in England, circa 1787, which Peters suggests may indicate that the service was in England at an early date, and was perhaps purchased by Frederick, 4th Baron Guilford, known as Lord North.
