This tea service was owned by Ann (Rapelje) Duyckinck (1733-1789), who married Gerardus Duyckinck in 1752. According to the donor, the set was acquired at the time of their wedding; however, it was probably made about thirty-five years later, when such porcelain became available on the American market.
