Empress maria theresia habsburg imperial & royal porcelain manufactory pair of urns.
Description
19” tall, 10”wide, 4” inch depth. Habsburg family Bindenschild shield under glazed blue. Impressed molders & turners mark as well as decorators identification number under glaze and in gold..Circa 1744-1780.

Provenance
Lady Harriet Augusta Canning wife of Bruce Vernon Wentworth bestowed these to my Grandmother in 1948 before the Wentworth Castle was sold to the Barnsley Corporation. Story is William Wentworth Earl of Stratford at Stainborough (1722-1791) while building the now Historic Wentworth Castle, went on the European “Grand Tour” collecting classical Antiquities. The Urns/Vases were part of the lavish decor for the next 2 centuries.

Hello!

I just picked up a pair of very unique looking spindle back chairs. I can't help but feel like they are notable. They appear to have been painted black so the original finish was a wood one. Would greatly appreciate any insight!

Best,

Reid
