Maison ODIOT Tea service in an oak chest... - Lot 131 - Daguerre
Maison ODIOT Tea service in an oak chest signed Odiot composed as follows: - A solid silver teapot, sugar bowl and milk jug signed Odiot in Paris (Insolators on the handle of the teapot numbered 794). - A rocking kettle and its lamp, and a silver-plated bowl for tea leaves, hallmarked Christofle. Key to the chest. Small dents. H. kettle 45 cm Gross weight of weighable parts 1514 g All pieces are engraved with poppies and daisies in the style of botanical plates. Coat of arms surmounted by a baron tortil for diplomat and politician François Adolphe, baron de Bourqueney (1799-1869) and Alix Le Clerc de Juigné (1822-1858), married in 1846 in Blois. This Odiot set was designed and produced when the company was run by Charles-Nicolas Odiot. It can be compared to a tea and coffee service with a tray, whose similar iconography is decorated not with traditional engraving but with "rongé" engraving, a technique using acid to give a broad amati appearance. (Reproduced in Odiot l'orfèvre, 1990, p. 182, private collection).
