Pair of 18th C. Chinese Export Famille Rose Plates with Crest & Monogram

$0.00Price

A pair of famille rose plates with a crest and monogram, c. 1780.

 

Dimensions: Approximately 9½” diameter.
 

The edges have an unusual gilt feather design interlinked with bows or knots.

 

On the rim there is a crest consisting of a winged arrow above a gilt monogram that is surrounded by crossed stems of leaves.

 

The cavetto is bordered in a gilt ribbon with interspersed floral sprays.

 

The center has a floral bouquet tied with a ribbon and three floral sprays.

 

I have not been able to identify the crest or the monogram. The overall feel of the decoration seems European rather than English.

 

Condition: In excellent condition consistent with age and usage.
