Sulkowski-Ozier model. Moulded oblong presèntoire on four rocaille supports. Painted on both sides with a crowned rocaille cartouche containing the count's armorials and decorated throughout with indianische blumen. Blue crossed swords mark. Slightly warped due to firing, two of the feet and rim chips restored. H 10, W 49.5, D 26.8 cm.
Circa 1737, model attributed to Johann Joachim Kaendler.

The first designs which Johann Joachim Kaendler presented for the service for "cabinet minister" Count Heinrich Brühl were based on modified versions of successful models. This included the Sulkowski-Ozier model, an example of which with Count Brühl's coat of arms was published by Berling in 1913. Chapter 24 of the "inventarium" of porcelain in Count Brühl's collection from 1st October 1753 lists 49 large double pedestals, of which this piece may have been one.
