Fabergé Scottish Cumnock Pottery Motto Ware Teapot and Sugar Bowl

0

Fabergé silver-mounted Cumnock Pottery Motto Ware teapot and sugar bowl. The teapot features the Scottish motto “Tak a dish o’ Tea it’s unco refreshin,” which means, “Take a dash of tea it’s uncommonly refreshing.”  The sugar bowl features the motto, “Be canny wi’ the sugar,” which means, “Be careful with the sugar.”

This set speaks beautifully to Fabergé’s interest in mounting compelling porcelain and glass objects from other sources. This included decorative objects made locally in Russia, and abroad, such as this Cumnock Pottery, as well as Royal Doulton Burslem, Tiffany, and Gallé.

Established in Ayrshire, Scottland in 1792, Cumnock Pottery is most famous for its Motto Ware, which the company began producing around 1830. These pieces were inscribed with a favorite Scottish quote and usually requested for special occasions like weddings and christenings.

The pottery, Scottish, late 19th century.
The silver mounts, Fabergé, Moscow, ca. 1895.
Teapot height: 5 in.
Sugar bowl height: 5-1/2 in.

Provenance:

Albert and Nora McGill

The McGill family were prominent British residents of Moscow in the 19th century. They played a significant role in the founding of Russia’s cotton mill industry and formed close family ties with other British families living in Moscow, such as the Shanks, and the Bowes, as well as the Russian aristocracy. Albert McGill’s cousin, Emma Billet, married Henry ‘Allan’ Talbot Bowe, who was closely connected with Fabergé. Born in South Africa and educated in England, Allan moved to Moscow to work for his cousin at the retailer Magasin Anglais. He worked there until 1886, when he met Carl Fabergé by chance while traveling by train from Russia to Paris. Fabergé recognized Allan’s potential, and together they opened Fabergé’s Moscow branch in 1887. Later, in 1903, the demand for Fabergé in England led him and his brother Arthur to open a London branch, which they operated until 1906 when management transferred to Fabergé’s son, Nicholas, and Henry Charles Bainbridge.
