Soup Tureen with the Arms of the Scholten-Hogenberg Family Soup Tureen With Stand, 1725–1730

This is a soup tureen with stand. It is dated 1725–1730 and we acquired it in 1938. Its medium is porcelain, vitreous enamel, gold. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This tureen represents a primary focus in the early collecting of Asian objects: Chinese export ceramics. Erskine, one of Sarah and Eleanor’s brothers, may have collected the tureen for its unusual cartouche, which research has since discovered to be the “coat of arms” for an 18th-century family of Dutch grocers.

This object was bequest of Erskine Hewitt. It is credited Bequest of Erskine Hewitt.
