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

Thank you so much! I’m trying to post, but it still says to first read the introduction. I’ve read it ten times, as well as all the rules. Help! Lol

Greetings Everyone!

We all know the excitement of finding a mysterious, unknown piece and the anxiety that follows until we find out more about it. Sentimental value aside we must also know - is it a treasure? Should you keep it or throw it away?

Well post your photos here by clicking "New Topic" and me and other fellow members will do our best to help identify those pieces for you.
Here are a couple of guidelines to make this easier for everyone:

1. Make sure you post at least 2 photos of the item. The better the quality the better the chance to identify it.
2. Don't forget to look for any marks on the object and make photos of them too.
3. Any provenance, such as where did the item came from could be useful.
4. By posting any photos you agree to let me use them in future articles on the blog should I determine they could be useful, this helps Antique-Marks.com develop further and keep the web site online.

Good luck!
