Catalogue Note

A similar example, from the collection of the Duchess of Lauderdale, Ham House, London, is now in an English private collection, purchased from the 1948 sale when objects were deaccessioned. The Lauderdales were among the earliest tea drinkers and this style of teapot would have been an exotic luxury used in the "Duchess's Private Closet". The closet was typical of a lady's apartments that served as a tea room and together with the tea table, was furnished with japanned chairs and lacquer boxes for sweetmeats and tea. For further information on Luxury Ceramics and Objets d'Art formerly at Ham House by Patricia F. Ferguson, see Christopher Rowell, ed., Ham House 400 Years of Collecting and Patronage, (Yale, 2013), pp.309-324.

A further example from the collection of Sir Augustus Wollaston Franks is in the British Museum, ref. Franks.1034. Franks was the keeper of the Department of British and Medieval Antiquities at the British Museum from 1866 to 1896.

For an example in the Groningen Museum, Groningen inv.no MB10, see Dr Christiaan J. A. Jorg, Interactions in Ceramics: Oriental Porcelain and Delftware (Hong Kong, 1984), pl.78 p.124.
