Coffee Mug with the Monogram of William T. Walters


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This white porcelain coffee cup has the monogram of William T. Walters in gold as well as gold rims. Monogrammed dining services were essential items in wealthy 19th-century households. The diaries of George A. Lucas, a Paris-based art agent, record that he and William were coordinating the ordering of a set of monogrammed Sèvres porcelain in late 1864. More items were ordered in the following years, from Sèvres or directly from Pillivuyt, often by the dozen.
