Lot Essay

This is one of two Chinese services of the same date made for Alexander Bannerman of Aberdeen (1715-1782). While this one bears the Bannerman crest, the other service displays the complete coat-of-arms. Both services were sold in a sale in Scotland in 2003. We are grateful to Angela Howard for her assistance in identifying this crest. Both Bannerman services will be published by Mrs. Howard in Chinese Armorial Porcelain, vol. III; this one in section H3, the other in G2.
