Soup Tureen with the Arms of the Scholten Family Soup Tureen With Stand
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.
