An exceptionally rare find. Custom created in Portugal by Mottahedeh, this pair of magnificent cache pots features early nineteenth century renditions of the U.S. Capitol and White House around the exterior. These designs are off-set in rich indigo blue motifs based on traditional Chinese export porcelain themes of the era. These hard-to-find pieces were commissioned for Garfinckel’s Department Store - the finest merchant in Washington, DC - in very limited number.
(Priced individually and available for sale as a pair.)
