Teapot stand

Factory Chelsea Porcelain Manufactory British

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 510

The gilding on these pieces (see 54.163.7a, b–.34) is of a very high order, with tooled work on a thick application of honey gilding selectively matte and burnished for a lively design of pheasants, peacocks, and swallows in a landscape. The deep bowl was for little cakes.
