A superb form, this Chinese Export armorial compote, almost certainly after an English form, bears the Arms of Seton, and is beautifully decorated with Mandarin scenes. Dating to circa 1820, the piece is from one of four services ordered for the Seton family. Our example was made for Sir John Henry Seton, 6th Baronet, Groom-in-Waiting to Queen Victoria and a veteran of the Peninsular War. Very good condition. See Howard’s Chinese Armorial Porcelain, Vol. II, page 674.
