Lot 246


A pair of Chinese Export porcelain famille rose armorial jardinières, 18th century, with twin handles, decorated in bright enamels and gilt to each side with a coat-of-arms on a ground of scattered floral sprays, 20cm high, 25cm wide (2)

Provenance: Almost certainly Baroness Burton (1873-1962), Chesterfield House, Mayfair.
                     The Collection of Lord and Lady Weinstock.

Note: In the late 19th century, Baroness Burton was a leading English collector of porcelain and French furniture.  She and her husband were the then owners of Chesterfield House, the superb rococo palace built from 1746 by Isaac Ware for the 1st Lord Chesterfield.  A series of photographs of its famous interiors taken by Bedford Lemere in the late 19th and early 20th century show them overflowing with Lady Burton's collection.  Chesterfield House was demolished in 1937 and Lady Burton died childless twenty-five years later.  Upon her death, the title of Baron Burton was passed down to Michael Baillie, 3rd Baron Burton.
