An extraordinary Chinese export armorial teabowl and saucer made for the Dutch market bearing the arms of Van Reverhorst. Not only is the quality exemplary, but the decoration is painstakingly meticulous; the Van Reverhorsts were obviously very proud of their social connections as there are no fewer than nine coats of arms painted in detail displaying all their ancestral connections. The teabowl measures 1 1/4″ tall, the saucer 3 3/4″ in diameter. Excellent condition. Circa 1745. Ex-K.R. Rizk Collection. See, Kroes, Chinese Armorial Porcelain for the Dutch Market, page 316.
