A beautiful and classic Chinese export porcelain punch bowl decorated with finely rendered sepia roundels with equestrian images taken from English prints of the period. Overglaze blue enamel and gilt borders complete the design, a grapevine border edges the interior rim which is centered with a basket of flowers. This design was popular in America in the Mid-Atlantic and Southern states where an English aristocratic country lifestyle was emulated. Of nice size and proportions, measuring 14″ in diameter, and with a hairline sealed, otherwise very good condition. Circa 1790.
