Lot Essay

Marc Schoelcher established a business as a porcelain merchant in 1798 in the faubourg Saint-Denis in Paris where he became well-known for his coloured grounds and unusual forms. In 1806 Schoelcher rented a retail outlet on the boulevard de Italiens, where he also decorated porcelain produced by other factories. Although little is known about the artists who worked at the factory, there is a stand forming part of an armorial écuelle and plateau in the Palacio Nacional de Quéluz, near Lisbon, which is decorated with Portuguese maritime scenes and signed by the same artist, P. Freund. It appears that Philippe Freund also decorated other porcelain by Parisian manufacturers, see the Paris porcelain vase in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum, New York (accession number 32.55.1).
