Ref: V794

Chinese famille rose armorial salt, Qianlong (1736-95), decorated with the arms of Bennet (gules a bezant between three demi lions argent, with the crest a demi lion argent holding in its paws a bezant), within a chain border, diameter 3 1/4 in.; condition: frit to rim, foot, chip to underside of rim. The bezant in the lion's paws indicate that this salt was probably made for the Bennet family of Finsbury in London, a merchant family of the later 18th century. For a plate with the arms of Bennet, see Howard, 'Chinese Armorial Porcelain', Vol. I, p. 613, pl. S2.
