We are proud to offer up for auction, the estate of
Florence (Fu) Eleanor Ueltzen.

In the year 1900, amidst the smoke and flames of the Boxer Rebellion, the 
terror and trials of life, a fragment of beauty, so rare and so exquisite in 
form, emerged like that of a Phoenix Rising from the Ashes?c 

Several bulks of Chinese silver bullion, equivalent to the size of a small 
dining table, were discovered by the American military. While heavily guarded 
at the Tientsin Imperial Mint, luminaries such as China?fs Grand Duke,Li 
Hongzhang, and members of the late Imperial family, Qing dynasty, came to a 
decision that would both honor and behold their western redeemers for many 
years to come, and to set forth a story of such History and Honor; a large 
?gbowl?h crafted entirely of that Sterling, and a number of commemorative sets 
of tea services to be fashioned by the renowned studio of Arthur and Bond, of 
Yokohama, Japan.  

Thus, as History beholds, the items were created, but for members of society of 
discerning stature: The Liscum Bowl and coordinating ?gcups?h, an additional 
Tea Service, & The William Boyce Thompson Tea Service. 

William Boyce Thompson, a pillar of stature in his own right, twice a delegate 
to the Republican National Convention (1916, 1920); Director of the Federal 
Reserve Bank of New York, (1914-1919); also noted philanthropist and financier 
of mining interests in Montana, Nevada and Arizona; benefactor of the William 
Boyce Institute and Arboretum, came to commission one of these immaculate tea 

On behalf of Catbecca.com Auctions, it is our esteemed pleasure to present to 
the World Wide Community, The William Boyce Thompson Tea Service, of Liscum 
Bowl Provenance, of circa 1906.
