A fine Chinese export porcelain armorial tea bowl and saucer very well-painted in Famille Rose enamels with gilded spearhead border, both pieces bearing the Arms of Barrington, Viscount Barrington, with Lovell in pretence. This specific service was made for the 2nd Viscount Barrington, William Wildman (1717-1793) who occupied several high positions in government including Secretary of War and Chancellor of the Exchequer. The viscount’s crown figures predominantly as the crest of the arms and on the reverse of the tea bowl. Minor frits filled and two lines to the saucer and one to the tea bowl sealed, otherwise good condition. Illustrated and discussed in Howard’s Chinese Export Porcelain, Vol. II, page 300. This piece formerly in the K. R. Rizk Collection. Circa 1745.
