Swan Service tea set "Capodimonte"

Swan Service tea set "Capodimonte"

What was once in regular use could now be some precious item from the treasure chambers of Augustus the Strong. It has to be admitted in this case, however, that the most exclusive of forms was sought and found for the “use” involved. Inspired sculptor Johann Joachim Kaendler joined with Johann Friedrich Eberlein and Johann Gottlieb Ehder in 1737 to create one of the most wide-ranging sets of tableware of all time to an order by Count Brühl that took them over five years to complete. It was to acquire seminal status as an artistic totality within the German Baroque. The captivating moulded pattern derives its name from the pair of swans gliding through the reeds within seashell veining. The flowering sprays and famous Swan Service relief moulding have been edged with 23-carat gold for this teaset edition, which is superbly accentuated by means of a gilt snail-shell finial.
