“Engelandt” Province Charger #4163

Rare Engelandt Charger of the Provinces Series

Circa 1720 in fine famille verte enamels. This striking and important charger is part of the first series of the Provinces chargers. “The spelling of the names shows they were made to Dutch order and their combination suggests a date after the Treaty of Utrecht which concluded the War of the Spanish Succession in 1713 and possibly at the time of the Triple Alliance by which these powers were linked in 1717. At least 23 different arms are now known to the series.” (China for the West, pg 118) measures 13-3/4 inches in diameter, making this charger rare for both its subject and size.
For a detailed discussion of the Province Chargers (in French). See “Hybrides” 2003 ISBN 2-87985-00307.
