The British sculptress Mary Thornycroft (1809 – 1895) was a favourite of Victoria who commissioned her to make portrait busts of each of her nine children for special niches at Osbourne House. Princess Louise herself became a very talented artist and sculptress. She studied with Thornycroft, who moved house so Louise could come for tuition. Louise produced the seated marble sculpture of Victoria which stands in Kensington Gardens.

IMG_6122

Edwardian era dessert service by the French porcelain makers Foecy c.1910. Comprising five raised comport dishes on stems (2 pairs at 2½” and 5½” height plus one larger dish at 6½” height) plus 19 8½” diameter dessert plates and a lidded sauce boat. Remarkably each piece is hand painted with an individual view of a chateau and church buildings with distinctive spire roofs beside a river. It’s quite possible this was a real place and the service was specially commissioned from Foecy by the owners of the estate. Surrounding the painted centre is a broad band of Sevres blue and a gilt edge. With the Foecy mark to the underside of one of the comports. Excellent condition with just a small chip to the edge of one of the plates.
