It’s always a thrill to find good Chinese export porcelain. These pieces were prized by our 18th century fore-bearers and have yet to lose interest or popularity amongst sophisticated collectors.
Here is my latest: A boar’s head tureen is fully polychrome decorated with Chinese figures and domestic scenes. Sprigs fill reserves bound by diaperwork. This is an amazing decoration atop a period chest or sideboard. The tray is complimentary with similar soft pastel tones. Minor repair only to the tureen and only minor fritting touched over on the shaped tray. All late 18th century.
Tureen: H.9, w.13.5″ d.9″. Tray: H.1″ w.3.5″ d.10″. $850 for the tureen and tray, sold only together.
