Two very fine examples of Chinese export porcelain made for the American market with a direct association to one of the most prominent early New England China Traders. These plates are from a service made for Edward Carrington of Providence, Rhode Island (1775-1843). He was a hugely successful China Trade merchant, shipping magnate, and one time Consul to Canton from 1802-1810. His luxurious home still stands in Providence today, a testament to his status and wealth. Each plate measures 7 1/2″ in diameter and is centered with a patriotic American eagle with a halo of stars, the border elaborately decorated in a sepia and raspberry grapevine pattern. Illustrated in Schiffer’s China for America, page 128. One plate with very minor rim flakes and a small line to the reverse rim sealed, otherwise fine condition. Circa 1805. ┬áPriced individually.
