An exceptional example in especially fine condition, this grisaille-rendered tea bowl and saucer bears the Arms of Vaughan impaling Hallowell. The service was made for Samuel Vaughan upon his marriage to Sarah Hallowell of Boston in 1747 and the design was taken from a bookplate by Thomas Chippendale which is meticulously re-created line for line by the Chinese painter imitating the bookplate. One of three services made for this family, this service though bears the Latin motto inscription. Illustrated and discussed in Schiffer’s China for America, page 34. Very good condition.
