(Five Centuries: Furniture, Paintings & Works of Art from 1600, 20th November 2019) ENGLISH PORCELAIN ARMORIAL PART TEA SERVICE 19TH CENTURY each piece painted with a gilt and polychrome crest with the motto LABOR IPSE VOLUPTAS, within coloured Greek key borders, with retailers marks MORTLOCK/ 18 REGENT ST., comprising eight teacups, 6cm high; eight saucers, 13.5cm diameter; and eight plates (Qty: (24)) Plates 22cm diameter Provenance: The estate of the late 5th Earl of Lovelace Note: Mortlock was a merchandising rather than a manufacturing operation. It has been described as arguably the most important china retailer in London in the early nineteenth century. It exercised enormous power and influence over the manufacturers, particularly including Coalport, insisting that the products that Mortlocks sold should bear the Mortlock mark rather than that of the original maker. By 1803, Mortlock was claiming to supply "Her Majesty [Queen Charlotte] and the Royal Family" with "Coalbrook Dale [Coalport] porcelain". In the late 1830s Mortlock provided Coalport pieces for Queen Victoria. The arms show Lovelace with Byron/Noel/Wentworth/Lovelace in pretence, with earl's coronet above, indicating a date after 1838.
