This exquisite lady's toilet service formerly belonged to Anna Thomson Dodge (1871-1970), whose husband Horace E. Dodge co-founded the Dodge Motor Company in 1914. A distinguished patron and connoisseur of 18th-century French fine and decorative art, Mrs. Dodge assembled one of the world's finest collections with the help of renowned dealer Joseph Duveen, 1st Baron Duveen, whose American clients included Henry Clay Frick, William Randolph Hearst, J.P. Morgan, and John D. Rockefeller. The dressing mirror from this service was sold along with the contents of Rose Terrace, Mrs. Dodge's house, by Christie's on 27-29 September 1971, lot 960.
