Condition Report

Generally in good order. Both with rubbing to gilt rims and slight surface wear to the fluted sections.


The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades. The condition report for the lot may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the condition report for the lot or shown in the online images of the lot. The condition report may not refer to all faults, restoration, alteration or adaptation because Sotheby's is not a professional conservator or restorer but rather the condition report is a statement of opinion genuinely held by Sotheby's. For that reason, Sotheby's condition report is not an alternative to taking your own professional advice regarding the condition of the lot.

Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

This style of border was used in the 1750s and 60s and was popularised by Madame de Pompadour and her circle. A service of this pattern was also presented to Carl Theodore, Elector of the Palatine, hence the pattern is sometimes refered to as Wittelsbach chequers. For a discussion of these services see David Peters, Sèvres plates and services of the 18th Century, Little Berkhamstead, 2005, pp. 337-8, no. 62-1.
