Note: These baskets were modeled after Meissen originals of circa 1740 and formed part of a table centerpiece comprising a lemon-basket surrounded by small shaped bowls, probably to hold oil and spices, all on a large shaped porcelain tray with turned-out handles. Several Chinese porcelain lemon baskets and stands of this form are known, however, the white molded rockwork over enameled waves on the stand in the present lot appears to be unrecorded. The stands in all the following examples have the more usual brown-glazed rockwork applied with enameled florets. See David S. Howard, op.cit., no.143, p.136 for an example in the Hodroff Collection; this basket is not pierced, which the author suggests indicates it was made prior to circa 1770. 


Minor wear overall. The basket restored and reattached. Otherwise in good condition. Not withstanding this report or any discussion concerning condition of a lot, all lots are offered and sold "as is" in accordance with our conditions of sale.
