Cream Pitcher with William T. Walters Monogram


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Monogrammed dinning 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 T. Walters 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. The same monogram (the intertwined initials "W.T.W") appears on the bindings of William's albums of drawings, and his napkins, glassware, and stationary.
