Scholten family Tureen, Lid, And Stand, ca. 1775–95

This is a Tureen, lid, and stand. It is dated ca. 1775–95 and we acquired it in 1938. Its medium is enameled and glazed hard-paste porcelain. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This tureen represents a primary focus in the early collecting of Asian objects: Chinese export ceramics. Erskine, one of Sarah and Eleanor’s brothers, may have collected the tureen for its unusual cartouche, which research has since discovered to be the “coat of arms” for an 18th-century family of Dutch grocers.

This object was bequest of Erskine Hewitt. It is credited Bequest of Erskine Hewitt.
