An ensemble of princely hunting passion from the middle of the 18th century
The famous Strasbourg Trompe-l'œil terrines date from the heyday of the manufactury. They were reserved for the large princely hunting services, such as those of Elector Clemens August, Clemenswerth; the Margrave of Baden, Hunting Castle Favorite and Cardinal de Rohan, Strasbourg.
The creator of the so-called ‘Schaugerichte’ is the modeller Johann Wilhelm Lanz, who under Paul Hannong, together with the Löwenfincks, led the Strasbourg manufactory into its heyday, which only lasted until 1754.
As we know from the ‘Protocollum Inventarisationis’ of 1761 (Catalogue Clemenswerth 1987 p. 475), all tureen models presented here were components of the Clemenswerth hunting service of Elector Clemens August of Cologne.
