NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle is honored to auction Porcelain from The Dalva Brothers Collection on Thursday, June 4, 2024 at 10am. Showcased will be over 150 lots of exquisite 18th and 19th century porcelain by such legendary manufactories as Sèvres, Vincennes and Meissen.

The porcelain offerings in The Dalva Brothers Collection reflect the depth of their enthusiasm and expertise for European Decorative Art. Included is a refined selection of French Rococo and Neoclassical porcelain from the manufactories of Vincennes/Sèvres, Saint Cloud and Mennecy. Finely painted cups and saucer, cabinet plates, and floral service wares compliment biscuit figures and flower-encrusted pot-pourri vases. Parisian biscuit porcelain firms such as Locret and the comte d'Artois Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis enhance the figure groups and a large pair of gold-ground two-handled vases from Darte Frères add prominence to the sale. This complement is augmented by German examples from Meissen including Kakiemon inspired wares, figure groups such as the Drunken Silenus, a regal stag, a swash buckling sword and other fine ornaments.

Since 1933, Dalva Brothers has been one of the world’s foremost resources for 18th century French and Continental furniture and decorative arts. Treasures from their New York showroom can be found in private collections around the world, as well as in such distinguished institutions as the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Louvre and the Palace of Versailles.
