Bottom Shelf - Part 3

Posting Number 2681   Date: 03/31/17     Return to Posting List

Let's Start with the bottom shelf of David Chadwick-Brown's secretary

There is a 5002, dark blue ACB bowl, and one can see how the white ground reduces the intensity of the dark blue jade, when viewed adjacent to the dark blue jade grotesque.

Shape: 5002

Form: Bowl

Layered Colors: Light Blue Jade over Flint White

Type: Acid Etched

Etching: Chinese

Decoration: Double Etched, Flint White

There is a kneeling girl plaque, with sprue. Word has it that six of them appeared together in Corning a few years ago, and all were unground. If their use was as a shade, for these are listed among the shades in Gardner, I'm not sure how much light would shine through.

Architectural Piece

There are two cire perdue pieces, one of which is catalogued as shape '0' on the website. The other, of a putto, may have been a practice run (though signed and dated by Carder, so a finished piece) for application to other pieces as handles - see Gardner, p.356, where putti serve as decorative handles. A number of years after purchase of the two horses, I happened upon the picture of Mr. Carder, page 53 in Gardner, and there was my piece in his bookcase!

The Florentia is a 6784, in cinnamon or coral.

Shape: 6784

Form: Bowl

Color:Colorless Type: Florentia

Decoration: Leaf, Cinnamon

2nd Decoration: Mica Flecked, Colorless

Size:12 in dia.
