1 The terrible and catastrophic events of September 11 th 2001 will never be forgotten. We know that all our members around the world will want to join us in extending to our American fellow members our heartfelt sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of great tragedy. The French Porcelain Society I have so enjoyed writing the newsletter for The French Porcelain Society and would like to thank you all for the help, guidance, friendship and the numerous submissions written when asked, not to mention all the news information that you have provided since the autumn newsletter of Without you all it would have made my job far more difficult. Please continue to be of assistance to Errol Manners, (please send any news to him at: / 66a Kensington Church Street, London W84 BY) with Cyrille Froissart and Tish Roberts as French and American correspondents, who will be taking the job over from the spring issue in Pamela Roditi. September 2001 RECENT EVENTS Symposium in honour of Madame Geneviève Le Duc Saturday March 31 st Sunday April 1 st 2001 at The Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London. The Society hosted a two-day symposium at The Wallace Collection dedicated to the memory of our member Madame Geneviève Le Duc. Members came from far and wide. Without doubt the nominee for the furthest away attendee was Richard Deacon from Australia. The programme on Saturday consisted of twelve short talks each lasting about twenty minutes. Speakers came from Britain, France, Italy, and the United States. The talks focused on various areas of research, which had for many years been pursued by Geneviève Le Duc, and to which she contributed so much in her numerous publications. Therefore, the early soft-paste factories and princely inventories were the main theme of the symposium. Although this format was a somewhat daunting undertaking, it proved to be hugely rewarding for all, as the amount of information covered in the time was prodigious. The morning session was chaired by our member Clare Le Corbeiller.
2 Marie Laure de Rochbrune, curator in the Département des objets d art at the Musée du Louvre opened the morning s conference with a paper entitled Hommage à un donateur du Louvre which encompassed the Niderviller factory and showed how very sophisticated pieces from this factory could be. John Whitehead, author and dealer, then discussed the inventories of the duc d Orléans in a paper entitled A Posthumous inventory of the Régent, Duc d Orléans which gave us fascinating insight into the early stages of John s research into these documents dating from He showed the range of pieces that the Duke kept at the château of Saint Cloud, the Palais-Royal and his wife s apartments. We all look forward to further information from these enthralling inventories will provide. Tamara Prèaud, the archivist at the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, spoke on the French soft-paste production of flowers in a paper entitled Naissance et évolution des fleurs à monter en porcelaine au 18e siècle. Using various inventories of the period she showed how the distinctive flowers that were produced at Vincennes were also made at the other early soft paste factories. At this point our French committee member Didier Cramoisan read out a letter from Madame le Duc s daughter Madame Patrice Léger who apologised for not being able to be with us, but thanked us for the honour of dedicating this symposium to her mother and wished us a successful and enjoyable day. After a short break, our chairman Aileen Dawson, a curator in the department of medieval and modern Europe, The British Museum, spoke on the Mennecy factory in her paper New thoughts on Villeroy/Mennecy, and drew to our attention the biscuit production of this factory which have been neglected. Whilst not comparable with of the output of the Sèvres factory, these biscuit pieces are of a very high quality. Jeffrey Munger, curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, spoke on an astounding piece that had been of recently acquired by the Fine Arts Museum in Boston, and read a paper entitled A Chantilly shell-shaped pot-pourri. Jeffrey showed this elaborate object was most ambitious and innovative, and illustrated many allied influences. The potpourri is surmounted by a figure of a monk reminiscent of the bonbonnières produced at Chantilly. Aileen Dawson chaired the afternoon session. Clare Le Corbeiller, curator Emeritus at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, spoke on a beautiful piece from their collection, A Chantilly Magot with globe, a suggested evolution of a model. This wide-ranging talk uncovered connections with the Jesuits in China, enlarging our ideas about chinoiseries. Dott. ssa Anreina d Agliano, an independent scholar, discussed Two Mennecy Boars from the Pitti Palace, once in the collections of the Duchy of Parma, and part of a 150 piece collection of European porcelain animals. Continuing the animal theme, Maureen Cassidy Geiger, curator of the Arnhold Collection, New York followed with Of Elephants and Porcelain, discussing the variations of the famous Meissen elephant-handled vases. She also explored Japanese and French connections. John Mallet, formally Keeper of Ceramics at The Victoria & Albert Museum ( ) ended the first part of the first part of the afternoon session with Two Children and a Fish and drew
3 parallels with examples from Meissen, Vincennes, Mennecy, Pont-aux- Choux, Chelsea, Bow and Longton Hall. After our afternoon tea-break we returned to hear Early soft-paste porcelain in the Bowes Museumdelivered by its Curator of Ceramics Dr. Howard Coutts who showed us many pieces collected in France in the 1860 s by Josephine Bowes and now in this extraordinary museum in Barnard Castle, County Durham. From America came Ghenete Zelleke, curator of European Decorative Arts, The Art Institute of Chicago. She discussed a remarkable white figure of an oriental immortal proving that not all porcelain figures have to be delightful to be beautiful as this emaciated, bug-eyed creature hardly filled this criteria but was non the less a most mouth watering piece and was indeed A singular Saint-Cloud figure. Bertrand Rondot, curator of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris spoke fittingly on the piece that the Madame Le Duc s daughter had donated in her memory. A Saint-Cloud Bouquetière and its source, was directly inspired by a Chinese famille rose design. We were shown a few more pieces from this ambitious but small group of polychrome wares at Saint-Cloud. Our former chairman Anthony du Boulay gave the final talk of the day on the fascinating topic of The Red Dragon Pattern and its origin. He showed how this design, which is known on Chantilly and Chelsea porcelains, and others, in fact owes its origins to the Meissen factory and not to the East Because these well-illustrated talks were mostly of about 20 minutes one s attention was easily held and I for one, came away with numerous new facts, thoughts and ideas. There was certainly plenty to absorb and ruminate on. And indeed there are still many agreeable memories of a wholly absorbing and enjoyable day! A reviving drink was followed by a much-needed dinner in the Courtyard Restaurant of the Café Bagatelle. There was much chatter and babble on the whole day s proceedings and we all enjoyed a most delicious meal! The whole day was deemed a great achievement and we all wanted to know when another symposium would take place, which was certainly proof of a most successful day. The Society also warmly thanks Paul Tippett of Christie s, who were particularlygenerous in their sponsorship of the Le Duc Symposium Dinner. We look forward to this symposium being published in June There will be 50 ½ tone and 50 full colour illustrations. Thank you to everyone who has donated towards the production costs, our first French Porcelain Society Journal and we look forward to receiving more donations for this and future publications. P.R. MAWLEY HALL
4 A report on our happy day s out from Giles Ellwood. On Sunday, 1st April, some fifty FPS members embarked on a trip to Witley Court and Mawley, respectively in Worcestershire and Shropshire, almost three hours north west of London. Witley is an evocative ruin, the seat since the 17th century of the Foleys (who added a magnificent Baroque church to the house after 1735), greatly aggrandised in the mid-19th century for the Earls of Dudley in a style which might best be described as John Vanbrugh meets William Chambers, gloves off. For amateurs of porcelain, the ruins hold an added fascination as the former location of a great collection of Sèvres (which included the pink-ground vaisseau à mat now in the J. Paul Getty Museum (75.DE.11.ab)), but in contrast to the recent Friends of the Zwinger visit to Count Brühl's Schloss Pförten in Poland, there were no reports of shards in nettles at Witley Court. After coffee, and a locust-like attack on the Witley Garden Centre, we continued to Mawley Hall, where we were met by its charming and hospitable owners Mr and Mrs Rupert Galliers-Pratt. The brick and stone house was designed by Francis Smith of Warwick in 1730, and stands on the point of an elevated spur which falls away steeply on three sides, affording spectacular views from almost every room. Mr Galliers-Pratt explained that his grandfather's trustees had purchased it in a state of near-dereliction in the mid-1950 s and that the contents had accumulated from other family properties, notably in Yorkshire. We then enjoyed a delicious lunch of chicken & leek pie and lemon duff, after which Mr Galliers-Pratt invited us to look at his house. The ravishing interior, with its strikingly Continental late baroque/early rococo plasterwork and panelling, is a perfect setting for a collection of European soft-paste porcelain unique in Britain, which was formed by Mr Galliers-Pratt's grand-father during the inter-war period, and came to Mawley in the late 1970s. Members were immediately intrigued by a travelling box marked IB, fitted with various white soft-paste porcelain vessels and containers, some with mounts bearing the mark of Pierre-Aymé Joubert (Paris, ), the porcelain of uncertain origin, but probably Mennecy. More readily identifiable was a set of tobacco jars in an adjacent room on the ground floor, with elegant grotesque ornament in under-glaze blue on a white ground, classic examples of the best St Cloud porcelain of the second quarter of the 18th century, with slightly later silver mounts stamped with the leopard's head, the Paris décharge mark for The collection is a large and - for its time - surprisingly academic one, but for those of us with a purely aesthetic interest in porcelain, the greatest pleasure of the day was the group of Vincennes wares - a sugar-castor and bowl, and a seau à verre - which we saw upstairs. Decorated with roses, butterflies, peonies and gentians in a manner at once deliberate, artless, precise and accidental, this very early Vincennes porcelain is somehow more evocative of Moghul art than of anything European! This was a thrilling day for the French Porcelain Society, and we thank Mr. and Mrs. Galliers- Pratt very much indeed for inviting us to Mawley. THE A.G.M. ANNUAL DINNER AND LECTURE Thursday June 14th 2001 A report from our treasurer Marilyn Caron Delion
5 Our Annual General Meeting was in the Lecture Theatre at the Wallace Collection, at Hertford House, Manchester Square, London, by kind permission of our President, Rosalind Savill. Our President duly signed the Minutes from the previous year. Our Chairman, Aileen Dawson reported on the Society's busy year since June One of the highlights of this last year was a symposium held on the weekend of 31st March & 1 st April in honour of our member the late Madame Geneviève Le Duc (see recent events above). Our Chairman gave a particular vote of thanks to Errol Manners for all the hard work he had done on this Symposium. Members were unanimous in voting for a further Symposium to be organized as soon as possible... Our questionnaire, designed by Hannah Obee, came back with some interesting results and we thank members who took the time to complete these forms. Our Chairman also announced that the French Porcelain Society is to go on line with its own website. We are fortunate that we have as one of our members a talented website designer and technician Anne McNair, who will be will be setting up The Society s own website this autumn. Our Secretary, Robert Compton-Jones, has retired and we thank him for all the work he has done for the Society. Hannah Obee has agreed to pick up the challenge and was voted our new Secretary. Letitia Roberts was voted an honorary member of the Committee. We are most grateful for all the work she does for the Society in New York for the American members. Oliver Fairclough is a new committee member and has agreed to be the General Editor for the new Publications Committee. After the AGM, members were allowed a quick drink and we then returned to the lecture room to listen to our Speaker, Howard Coutts, curator at the Bowes Museum in County Durham. Howard delivered his lecture entitled "Services and Service à la Française: The influence of the French dinner service in the 18 th Century" which was on the theme of formal dining through the ages with particular emphasis on the development of the Service à la Française. Porcelain items were developed and used following the lead from silverware and different shapes of tureens were used for broths, soups and meat dishes. The plainer items of smooth porcelain were used for the meat courses and the desserts and sweetmeats had more elaborate designs. These dessert wares were developed during the 18th century and became a major part of the table decoration. Many of the porcelain figures were exceptionally beautiful and perhaps if you were bored with your neighbour at table, you could always admire the wonderful shepherds and their dancing partners, musicians, gardeners and lovers, all enjoying themselves amongst the mass of flowers, realistic fruit and vegetables which made up these sumptuous garden designs for the table. Figures from the Italian Comedy or commedia dell arte, were familiar to all, and were made in porcelain to decorate tables. They are now extremely desirable as collectors' items. The development of the formal manner of dining continued into the 19th century, with very elaborate dessert services and many of these items have continued to be used into the 20th century. If we ever organize "un Grand Diner" on some very formal occasion in the 21st century, rather than the casual way of entertaining in the kitchen, with the hostess chatting over the counter to the guests, our table settings no doubt would owe a lot to the former glories of the "Service à la française" and perhaps indirectly to Versailles... As usual, the Society's annual lecture was most informative and enjoyable and we are all most grateful to Howard Coutts for his excellent contribution to our June celebrations. This was followed by our annual dinner in the Courtyard Restaurant of the Café Bagatelle, which was much enjoyed by all our members.
6 UPPARK HOUSE AND GOODWOOD A report by our member Tracey Albainy June 19, 2001 THE ANNUAL OUTING Both houses have been the subject of recent FPS lectures and publications, Uppark in 1999/2000 and Goodwood in The first house visited was Uppark, built by William Talman around 1690 for Lord Grey of Warke. The exterior of the house is largely unchanged since the late 17 th century, though Sir Matthew Fetherstonhaugh extensively remodeled the interior after he inherited the estate in In 1751, Sir Matthew and his new wife Sarah Lethieullier embarked on a Grand Tour, during which time they acquired works of art, notably Italian paintings, for Uppark (their portraits by Pompeo Batoni, painted in Rome in 1751, now hang in the Little Parlour). However, the French decorative art was largely purchased by their son, Sir Henry Fetherstonhaugh, who inherited Uppark in Years after his Grand Tour, Sir Harry revisited France in , 1819 and again in 1824, on each occasion buying Sèvres porcelain and French furniture. A later owner of the house, Lt. Colonel Keith Turnour-Fetherstonhaugh, subsequently sold the most important pieces of French furniture, Sèvres and Chelsea porcelain, and European silver in 1910 and (Some of the Sèvres vases can now be seen in American museums, including the Huntington Collection, San Marino, California, the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles and the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore, Maryland). Many members had visited Uppark before the devastating fire of 30 August 1989 and were eager to view firsthand the result of the decade-long restoration undertaken by the National Trust. The majority of the house s important art collection survived the fire and has been reinstalled in the fully restored ground floor rooms. Tragically, the private rooms on the second floor and, in them, the Meade-Fetherstonhaugh family possessions were totally destroyed. Anthony du Boulay s article, "French Porcelain at Uppark: A Re-assessment," published by the French Porcelain Society Journal No. XV in 2000, records the French porcelain lost in the fire (page 8). The members divided themselves into two groups, one led by Anthony du Boulay and the second by Ros Savill. I joined the first group, which enjoyed lively discussion on the porcelains in each room. Because Anthony du Boulay discussed the French porcelain in his lecture to the FPS in 1999 and in his subsequent paper, it is not necessary to elaborate on each piece here. On account of the Uppark sales in 1910 and 1911, very little 18 th -century French porcelain remains in the house. One of the most striking examples is a Sèvres hard-paste vase "du roi" with white ground and gilding (the model appears between 1775 and 1777). Of the 13 Sèvres and Paris vases Anthony du Boulay records in Uppark, most date to the early 19 th century. A number of these are 18 th -century porcelain, decorated in the 19 th century. Especially puzzling is a garniture of three Sèvres hard-paste cuvettes à fleurs à tombeau (one of the first size and two of the second size), decorated with a pink ground and the arms of the dauphin Louis and the dauphine Marie-Antoinette, This garniture was the subject of a lengthy debate. When Sir Harry purchased the garniture in Paris in 1819, the vases reputedly already bore the coats of arms. However, the reserve decoration of putti amid clouds, appears to be 19 th -century in date. Clearly more investigation is needed.
7 On the Dining Room table stands a Sèvres biscuit group, or gerbe, in the form of a trophy emblematic of autumn, designed by Alexandre-Théodore Brongniart and dated The Uppark group can be linked to an elaborate table decoration designed for Napoleon, the surtout des Saisons, beginning in Jacob Desmalter, acting as an agent for Sir Harry Fetherstonhaugh, likely purchased the gerbe now at Uppark from Sèvres in The gerbe survived the sales in 1910 and 1911 only to be sold privately after 1930; in 1997 it appeared in an auction in Salisbury, where it was purchased for the National Trust. [An article on the gerbe by Christopher Rowell appeared in Apollo, April 1999.] The morning visit around the house was greatly enhanced by comments on the Grand Tour paintings, English and Asian porcelain, and 18 th -century English furniture made by members of the group, as well as a quick walk through the restored basement level, consisting of the kitchens and staff rooms. A highlight of the basement tour was the doll s house, dating to the late 1730s. After lunch, we re-boarded the bus for the trip to Goodwood, the principal seat of the Dukes of Richmond, in West Sussex. The 2 nd and 3 rd Dukes of Richmond considerably enlarged and extensively remodelled the original Jacobean house between 1729 and the early 19 th century, giving the house its present classical appearance. The round Card Room, where the Sèvres is exhibited, is situated in one of the wings added by James Wyatt between 1800 and Ros Savill and Selma Schwartz, who joined the group at Goodwood, gave an introduction to the Sèvres dessert service ordered from the factory by the 3 rd Duke of Richmond. Here, again, the Goodwood service has been the subject of an FPS lecture given by Ghenete Zelleke in 1991 and a publication of the same year, Vol. VII. A brief summary only is needed here. The 3 rd Duke of Richmond, who was appointed English Ambassador Extraordinary to the French Court in October 1765, ordered the service (apparently through Jean-Jacques Bachelier) while in Paris between November 1765 and February The service is noteworthy on several grounds; not only is it a large and early purchase of Sèvres by an English patron, but it is also the earliest datable service decorated with naturalistic birds copied after George Edwards illustrations. The Goodwood Service comprises both green and bleu lapis grounds; the four pierced baskets combining the two colors link the two parts of the service. As Ros pointed out, the two colors were intended to be combined, the tasses à glace in one color presented on the plateau of another color. Unifying the service are the naturalistic depictions of birds taken directly from two publications by the naturalist George Edwards: The Natural History of Birds, published in 3 volumes between 1743 and 1750, and Gleanings of Natural History, published in 3 volumes between 1758 and A comparison between the coloured etchings and the porcelain decoration revealed that the Sèvres painters most likely had at their disposal the first two volumes of the French edition of A Natural History of Birds, published in 1745 and 1748 (the images in the French edition are reversed). Edwards dedicated the French edition to his patron, the 2 nd Duke of Richmond. The Goodwood library contains the French edition, as well as the English editions of both publications. Volumes from both A Natural History and Gleanings were available for the group to view. The service bears the marks for several painters: among them, François-Joseph Aloncle, Antoine-Joseph Chappuis, and Etienne Evans. The most remarkable pieces, including the green-ground seaux à bouteilles and the large thière Calabre, were painted by Armand l aîné. Bernard Dragesco, who has made a study of this painter s work, joined the discussion on these and other pieces
8 decorated by Armand. The Sèvres painters reproduced the colors exactly, but often changed the stance and position of the birds; Bernard pointed out that Armand annotated one of his drawings with a reminder to visit the Cabinet de l Histoire Naturelle, presumably to study the birds directly for a greater degree of naturalism and lively characterization. Also on view in the Card Room are 19 vases, including a garniture of three green-ground vases a vase à la couronne and a pair of vases Danemark à gauderon, decorated with Teniers scenes by Morin. These vases were likely those purchased by the 3 rd Duke while visiting the factory in mid- November The duke s purchase of this garniture may well have provided the impetus for the commission of the dessert service shortly afterwards. The Card Room also contains a pair of pinkand-green caisses carrées, 1759; a tea service with bleu céleste ruban decoration; and an assortment of blue-ground vases of various models, including a pair of vases Danemarck with Teniers scenes, 1766; a pair of blue-ground vases à feuilles d acanthe, 1765; and pair of blueground vases Bachelier à serpent, Also in the cases was a set of Chelsea beakers in two sizes with a dark blue ground and gilded decoration of exotic birds and floral swags, ca The interiors of Goodwood largely date to the Georgian and Regency periods, and have been recently restored by the present occupant of the house. After viewing the Sèvres, we toured the ground floor rooms, including an Egyptian Revival Dining Room, added by James Wyatt between 1802 and Continuing the tour, the group admired a late 17 th -century Flemish marquetry cabinet-on-stand, pier table and pair of gueridons; a set of four yellow-ground Gobelins tapestries from the Don Quixote series; a magnificent pair of Canaletto views of Richmond House, London; a pair of Meissen platters from the Hunting Service commissioned by the Elector of Cologne; and many other works. Nonetheless, one of the highlights of the day came at the very end with a brief stop at the Shell House, decorated by the 2 nd Duchess of Richmond and her two daughters Caroline and Emily, in the 1730s FORTHCOMING EVENTS FORTHCOMING FRENCH PORCELAIN SOCIETY EVENT Wednesday 24 th October :40pm At The Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, South Kensington London SW7 2RL An Evening Lecture preceded by a study session in the French porcelain galleries.

RECENT ACQUISITIONS Museum of Fine Arts Boston 465 Huntingdon Avenue, Boston, Mass , USA Tel: Fourteen pieces from a highly important Sèvres hard-paste porcelain ( ), Service aux Liliacées, produced for Joséphine de Beauharnais, wife of Napoléon Bonaparte and Empress of France, between 1802 and Consisting of ten plates, a pair of ice-cream coolers (seaux à glace forme vase) with covers and liners and two basket-form vases (corbeilles forme jasmin) with botanical decoration after Pierre Joseph Redouté. The pieces are decorated by Philippe Parpette, Jacques-Nicolas Sisson, and Gilbert Drouet, and gilded by Charles Marie Pierre Boitel and Antoine Gabriel Boullemier Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Henry R. Kravis, acc. nos Provenance: Part of a large dessert-service delivered to Empress Joséphine ( ) at the château de Saint-Cloud, in March 1805; transferred to the château de Malmaison later that month; given by Joséphine to Stéphanie de Beauharnais (her niece and the adopted daughter of Napoléon I) ( ) on the occasion of her marriage to Karl Ludwig Friedrich of Baden in 1806; by descent in the Baden-Württemberg family. The innovative decoration on each piece is based on engravings made after watercolors by Pierre Joseph Redouté ( ) and published in three botanical treatises in Paris between 1799 and Named for one of his most celebrated works, Les Liliacées [The Lilies], the service depicts the lilies and other flowering plants cultivated by Joséphine at the château of Malmaison, near Paris. Redouté s most creative period began when, in 1798/99, Joséphine acquired the château. Passionately interested in botany and horticulture, Joséphine collected rare and beautiful plants from around the world and cultivated them scientifically in the château garden. She commissioned the flower painter Redouté to execute watercolors of individual specimens, which were in turn engraved as bookplates to illustrate the treatises compiled on her plant collection by noted botanists. Les Liliacées, published in eight volumes between 1802 and 1816, contains nearly 500 plates, depicting irises, crocuses, freesias, gladioli, amaryllis, narcissi, orchids, snowdrops, and other monocotyledons, as well as lilies. The Sèvres service copies plates from the first two volumes, as well as plates that were made after Redouté s watercolors and published in two other treatises also sponsored by Joséphine.

Wadsworth Atheneum (600 Main Street, Hartford CT Tel: ) A Sèvres hard-paste porcelain teapot théière Etrusque à gaudrons [sic] or gaudronnée, 1817 Marks: blue stamped mark under Louis XVIII ( ); painted in black "MC" possibly for Pierre-Louis Micaud, fils (painter and gilder, ) and "ds" for 1817 This is a rare example of a teapot with a coral-red ground (possibly called fond Etrusque) made by the Sèvres porcelain factory in The model was introduced at the factory in This example was part of a teaset delivered to the then Duc d Orléans, the future king Louis-Philippe. A pen drawing of this shape appears in a tariff book at the Sèvres archives, with the name théière Etrusque gaudronnée. The teapot is made entirely of hard-paste porcelain, including the gilded handle, finial, foot, and lion s head spout. The red and black colour scheme of the teapot s body is evocative of antique red-ground pottery, which the French thought to be of Etruscan origin. The fluting of the body is part of the molded form, while that on the lid is simply painted in. MUSEUM NEWS Verwaltung der Residenz München; Residenzstr.1; München; Tel: (0) ; Fax: (0) Open every day from 10 am to 4 pm. The galleries of 18 th century porcelain in the Residenz have been closed due to technical problems. They will not re-open for several years probably when a new display system has been installed. Therefore, with the exception of the few visible pieces of porcelain in the former Schatzkammer of the electors, all the Vincennes, Sèvres and Paris porcelains are not accessible for the time being. This does not affect the just recently arranged galleries of 19 th century porcelains that also include remarkable Sèvres and Paris pieces.
