Cup with cover and stand (one of a pair)
John Parker British
Edward Wakelin British
Not on view
This pair of cup was made for the Curzon family, important patrons of the architect Robert Adam. The bold profile, rich beading, and unusual square base represent an early foray into the neoclassical style. Although the design is not attributed, some motifs are apparently borrowed from the published designs of William Kent, an architect active a generation earlier.
