A very rare and unusual form, this Chinese export porcelain chalice form egg cup is decorated in the equally rare Rockefeller Pattern. Noted for it’s rich, gilded foliate-patterned grounds, meticulous landscape reserves and finely painted Mandarin scenes, it is amazing to see that that level of detail was carried out in the decoration of a 2 3/4″ tall egg cup! Some evidence of a very minor restoration to the interior of the cup, most likely a small line sealed, otherwise, very good condition. Circa 1795. $1,400.00.
