Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    From the service commissioned by Heinrich Graf von Brühl in 1742 and listed at his death in 1763 in his Dresden palace in the Augustusstrasse

    The 'Brühlsche Allerlei' service was one of the most magnificent table services made at the Meissen manufactory and is comparable in scale and ambition to the better-known Swan Service. The service has been thoroughly discussed by Johanna Lessmann, Das "Brühlsche Allerlei" Ein Service für Heinrich Graf von Brühl, in U. Pietsch (ed.), Schwwanenservice (2000), pp. 106-123. The service originally comprised over 2000 pieces, including dinner, dessert and coffee services, and at Brühl's death in 1763, still included 24 oval and 23 circular tureens of various sizes. Most of the modelling work on the service appears to have been done by J.F. Eberlein and J.G. Ehder, whose work records include numerous references to the service. Kaendler's work records include, in November 1746, a large tureen for the service. Two large groups from the service were sold by Sotheby's London, 8 July 1997, lot 57; and by Sotheby's New York, 21 November 2014, lot 1304.
