Meissen Porcelain Cabinet Plates and Bob Scriver Bronze Sculpture Come to Sale with Charlton HallSep 22, 2022 11:00 EDT
The history of Meissen porcelain dates back to the early 18th century. Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus, a German mathematician and chemist, devised a distinct method of making hard-paste porcelain at his Meissen workshop in 1708. Two years later, Tschirnhaus collaborated with Johann Friedrich Böttger to produce the hard-paste wares. The Meissen trademark went on to become a prominent symbol of outstanding porcelain quality. A set of three cabinet plates of fine Meissen cobalt-ground reticulated porcelain is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Charlton Hall. The late 19th-century set is designed with gilded openwork rims. The plates depict elaborately painted scenes including illustrations based on the works of Dutch masters Godfried Schalcken and Adrieen van der Werff. Lone Cowboy, a significant sculpture by Montana-based artist Robert Macfie Scriver (Bob Scriver) is another noteworthy lot. This bronze on wood base piece was the concluding work designed for a commissioned project of five historical portraits of Western men with horses.
John James Audubon’s Carolina Parrot also leads the listings. The 39 ½ inches by 26 inches unframed chromolithograph by the artist and ornithologist portrays the American bird species in its habitat. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Charlton Hall.
