Lot Essay

This charming and unusual European taste design is sometimes attributed to Dutch artist, Cornelis Pronk (1691-1759), due to date, shapes and the similarity of its motifs, including the distinctive gilt melon-form ornament on the necks, to Pronk's oeuvre. The 'Parrot on a Perch' decoration was also employed at Meissen.
The Tibor Collection was formed over decades, growing to encompass every category of Chinese export porcelain, from small, charming teawares to massive pairs of important jars. The collector had a deep appreciation for the magnificent porcelains made for New Spain as well as for the lifelike charm and elegance of Chinese porcelain figure and animal models.
