Johan and Abigail Adams Soup Tureen and Stand, Preserves Stand

These French porcelain serving pieces, including a soup tureen and stand and a preserves stand, were made at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Sevres, France, in 1782. John and Abigail Adams may have acquired their pieces during their time abroad when Adams served as the minister to France between 1784 and 1785.
