This early Rococo Revival–style ewer is distinguished by its bold and skillfully rendered foliate ornament. It was presented in 1827 to Valentine Mott, a prominent New York surgeon, and is marked by Marquand, whose retail establishment was succeeded by the prestigious firm Ball, Black and Company. Marquand’s brother and executor, Henry G. Marquand, later served as president of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
