English Chelsea Rococo Snowball Style Porcelain Covered Urn

Ref: B-36-0014
Chelsea Porcelain Works (England, c. 1745-69)

Unsigned, this antique, porcelain covered urn is attributed to Chelsea, and may have been part of a garniture set. It is crafted in the style Meissen's snowball blossom (German: Schneeballen) decoration. It displays the soft paste body and the opaque glaze associated with Chelsea; the first English factory to make porcelain. It features applied florettes that imitate the work of the Dresden factories, along with vining, red berries. The flowers are intact; one berry is missing and there is slight damage to some of the leaves. It is a rare survivor and a wonderful addition to any 18th century collection; and certainly a beautiful display piece.

c. 1750
