SURNAMES: VON BOTHMER & STEYNMETS
Late 18th Century Delft Chargers

The attachment is of two Delft porclain chargers made circa 1786 in Delft, Holland. They have been in the Von Bothmer/Stymiest family for over 200 years. A Johann Caspar Von Bothmer married a Steynmets (of which I am a direct descendant). Over the years the chargers belonged to the Von Bothmer families. In the 1990s a Von Bothmer died in Portland, Oregon leaving the porcelain pieces to a relative( a niece, I believe) in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. After the death of this person, the estate was put up for auction in 1999. I was fortunate to be able to purchase the fine exquisite pieces. Truly a prized possession.

Thanks,
