|Object Name||Cup, Coffee|
This cup is from a service made for John William Commerell. He was the son of William Commerwell of Swabia, Germany, who emigrated to England in 1732. The arms were granted in 1752. John Commerwell lived Strood Park in Sussex in southeast England.
The service was probably made on the eve of his marriage to Mary Bosanquet in 1786, and may well have been commissioned through her brother, Jacob Bosanquet, who worked for the British East India Company.
