Absolutely lovely! This pair of Chinese export porcelain ‘trios’ are exquisitely decorated in famille rose enamels with elegant floral sprigs and edged with an entwined vine border, all finished with brilliant gilding. Typical of the spare and sophisticated decoration in vogue during the late 18th century. Composed of 5 1/2″ diameter saucer, a 3 1/2″ diameter tea bowl and a 2 1/2″ tall handled cup, all in amazingly good condition with virtually no wear. Circa 1785. $375.00 ea
A very fine pair of Yongzheng period Chinese export porcelain ruby ground plates, each centered with a leaf-shaped reserve decorated with a cockerel standing on a rock amongst flowering branches, the rims with smaller leaf reserves with flowering branch and bird and butterfly vignettes, all against a rich ruby enameled ground, a technically very difficult effect to achieve in a kiln firing. One in good condition, 1 with rim line consolidated, both presenting beautifully and measuring 9 7/8″ in diameter. Circa 1735-1740.
A charming Chinese export porcelain handled cup and saucer, finely painted in the well-known Rockefeller pattern with Mandarin scenes against a scrolling, foliate, gilded ground, even the secondary bits of decoration-small landscape reserves and vignettes of birds amongst branches-are rendered with the same attention to detail. The central scene on the saucer is especially engaging with the gamboling attendant with a basket of food! The saucer 5 1/2″ in diameter, the cup 2 3/4″ tall. Three short rim lines sealed to the reverse of the saucer; the cup with re-touch to the gilding, otherwise good condition. Circa 179
Another interesting example from our collection of Chinese export porcelain in the much sought-after Rockefeller pattern. Known for its amazing quality of well-painted unique scenes and highly detailed borders and fine gilding, this piece was part of a special ordered service and a roundel was centered at the top of the reticulated border just in case a nobleman wanted his coats-of-arms painted included. Measuring 7 5/8″ in diameter, and in very good condition with the hand-cut reticulation all in good order. Circa 1795.
A very lovely Chinese export porcelain reticulated plate in the well-known Rockefeller pattern with the usual high quality decoration that one expects from these special order pieces. Each scene is always unique and highly detailed (note the cat playing with a butterfly), and with elaborate borders and gilding. Measuring 7 1/2″ in diameter and in very good condition with the exception of a small rim chip restored, the hand-cut reticulation, amazingly, all still intact. Circa 1795..
A very impressive Chinese export porcelain wine cooler, decorated in famille rose enamels with elegant flowering branches, the bulbous form raised upon a flared base and surmounted by a flared monteith style rim, the rim decorated as well on the interior. Heavily potted to support ice and wine for a lavish entertainment, this magnificent piece, modeled after European silver forms, would have been a status symbol in its day, gracing a nobleman’s sideboard, a sign of his gracious and liberal entertaining. Measuring 13″ x 19″ x 16″. With a crack sealed and a chip to one of the monteith lappets restored, otherwise, very good condition. Third quarter of the 18th century.
Another fine Chinese export porcelain handled cup and saucer in the well-known Rockefeller pattern (see also Item #0265), meticulously decorated with finely detailed Mandarin scenes and rich, gilded decoration.

The saucer measuring 5 1/2″ in diameter, the cup 3 1/2″. Circa 1795.
