Provenance

Probably Jacob and Catherine (Rutgers) LeRoy, to their daughter
Elisabeth LeRoy, m. 1793 Guilian McEvers, to their daughter
Catherine McEvers Birckhead (1795-1868), and by descent in the Birckhead family

Catalogue Note

The block initials on the bases of these canns are probably those of Jacob LeRoy and his second wife Catherine Rutgers LeRoy, married 1766; they were also the probable first owners of the pair of Myers candlesticks in this sale (lot 3238).  

The GEME at the front is for the next generation, Guilian McEvers and the LeRoy's daughter Elizabeth, married in 1793 (after Daniel Christian Fueter's death in 1785). Giulian McEvers was the son of New York merchant Charles McEvers and his wife Mary Verplanck, married in 1763.
