Lot Essay


A related garden stool from the Convent of the Capuchinas, Toledo, dated to the Zhengde reign (1506-1521), is illustrated by C. Krahe in Chinese Porcelain in Habsburg Spain, Madrid, 2016, p. 199, no. 83. Like the present garden stool, the Convent of the Capuchinas example is decorated with a central band of confronting lions above a wave border, similar bosses and molded mask handles within a cartouche, but with an upper diaper band and a pierced medallion on the top.
