Detail Description

Jan Anthonis de Haas, as a service worker, was a regular supplier to the company Bennewitz & Bonebakker. However, from 1 January 1822 onward, this company ceased to exist. Bennewitz founded his own company Bennewitz & Sons. From 1822 J.A. de Haas’s name appears as ‘work master’ at the new company As Bonebakker & Son. Together with other ‘work masters’ Bentvelt and Stellingwerff he was very productive and he earned the most for his supplies of silver objects to the new firm in 1822. These silver chestnut vases are dated 1822.



Actually, Bonebakker kept these chestnut vases in stock till November 1825. On 24 November 1825 they were sold for 435 guilders by As. Bonebakker & Son to J. Carp, who lived at Keizergracht near Leidsestraat in Amsterdam: 1 paar castagne vazen met goudronnen 8:8:3 3/4 f 435,-, together with green chamois leather-lined bags, costing 5 guilders.



Johannes Carp (1761-1840), son of George Willem Carp, was a member of the company Jan Willem Carp & Son in Amsterdam until the liquidation of the company in 1821. Thereafter, Johannes Carp became Director of the Nederlandsche Bank and a member of the Amsterdam City Council, the States of Holland and the Chamber of Commerce. On 10 April 1794 he married jonkvrouwe Cornelia Emerentia Van Winter, who was born in Amsterdam in 1772. After Johannes Carp’s death, a notaray in Amsterdam, Mr Commelin, commissioned some liturgical silver from As. Bonebakker & Son in 1845, as a bequest by Johannes Carp. Cornelia died in Amsterdam in 1858, then living at Keizersgracht nr. 360.  The portraits of the couple are attributed to Charles Howard Hodges.
