Very Fine Mandarin Plates #4626

A pattern we always seek out is this beautiful service that always has wonderful Mandarin scenes well rendered in famille rose enamels within a very rich border of flowers and butterflies against a rich, gilded ground. This must have been a one-off special order service in its day and is an excellent example of the luxury of the private trade in the early years of the 19th century. Measuring 7 3/4″ in diameter, slight stacking wear to one, otherwise in very fine condition; circa 1810.
