An impressive and handsome Chinese export porcelain covered tureen and stand, made for the American market, with a Philadelphia connection; from a service having been ordered for Richard Renshaw Thomson, son of a prominent Philadelphia China trader, and himself a one time American consul to Canton. Very finely hand-rendered sepia Fitzhugh with gilded handles and finial, and bearing Thomson’s monogram. Measuring 11″ tall x 14″ across, and in very good condition. Truly a centerpiece for any American market collection or table. Circa 1820.
