Description

Oval, Flagship Corsair Scalloped Edge Flagship Platter 11" x 8 1/2". The Minton's china has the J. Pierpont Morgan signature navy blue trim with gold accents. Top, inside edge of platter has the New York Yacht Club burgee and the Commodore's Flag of anchor with stars on a blue field, crossing staffs with a blue banner beneath reading "Flagship". Reverse has Mintons stamp. This offering of rare China was used aboard J. Pierpont Morgan’s private steam yacht, Corsair II. This historic craft served as “flagship” of the prestigious New York Yacht Club. The 241’ craft was built with the finest materials and furnishings available, providing her owner with the princely comfort he desired. J.P. Morgan was elected the Club’s Commodore in 1897 and this fine porcelain china, made by the world renowned English maker Mintons, was used to entertain Morgan’s guests. His guests were some of the most famous and powerful people of the day. There are 250 lots of J.P. Morgan’s former possessions in this sale at Boston Harbor Auctions.
