Provenance

The collection of Countess Turgot
Bertram Woodhouse Currie, Minley Manor, circa 1896
See the Catalogue of the Collection of Works of Art at Minley Manor. Printed for private circulation by Arthur L. Humpherys, 187 Piccadilly, W. 1908, where they are recorded p.15:
PAIR OF CYLINDRICAL VASES Covered with a rich mazarine blue glaze; the decoration extending over the body of the Vases, consists of birds among the bamboo framework and flowers; on the necks of formal flowers and narrow borders; mounted in ormolu and fitted as electric lamps. Height 1 ft 7.5 inches. Purchased 1887 from Durlacher Bros. with a Boule casket for 625l.  From the Collection of La Comtesse Turgot.

The collection, which was latterly at Minley Manor, had been formed by Bertram Wodehouse Currie between 1866 and 1896 and many of the objects were formerly at 1 Richmond Terrace and at Coombe Warren, Surrey but were removed to Minley in 1888. Some of the furniture had been acquired by Raikes Currie. The oriental China was added since 1896. In the introduction to the collection by L. Currie, it also mentions also `the seven large Oriental vases (two from Hamilton Palace').
