Description

At Monticello, wine was not served until the final dessert course, when the tablecloth was removed and the serious conversation began.  It is hard for us to imagine today how elaborate and lengthy 18th-century dessert courses could be.  In addition to two seaux crénelé, the crenelated buckets used for cooling wine glasses, a dessert service might easily include several dozen plates, a dozen compotiers, a dozen ice cream dishes and several serving dishes.  Thomas Jefferson's surviving seau was decorated by Genevieve Le Roy Taillandier, who was paid by the piece for work she did at home.  Made in Portugal.  Hand wash.  11 1/2"l
