Hyde Hall

Silver Tureen




Made by Charles Fox and James Turner (w.1801-1804)

London, England


The graceful lines of the tureen epitomize neoclassical silver styling and imitated the forms of a Greek earthenware vessel, the kylix. One side is engraved with the pheon, the Hyde family crest. George Clarke (1768-1835) may have brought this piece to New York when he moved from England in 1806. It is listed in an inventory of silver at Hyde Hall by his daughter-in-law in 1854.
