Lidded goblet and Table Bell, Johannes Mattheus van Kempen, 1851

founding, h 36.7cm × d 9.6cm More details

When producing work for the World Fairs, Van Kempen called on leading designers capable of creating consistent designs in historical styles. An example is the goblet from 1851, modelled on the Renaissance. The style of the company’s customary products, such as the table bell, for which Van Kempen combined various sources of inspiration, was much less pronounced. Its angular shapes reference the Baroque, the engraved asymmetrical decoration the Rococo.
