A rather unusual pair of Chinese export porcelain 5 1/4″ saucers almost certainly made for the American market decorated with a military officer in a plumed hat mounted upon a white horse next to a standard bearer carrying a spear-tipped staff flying the American flag. What we find a conundrum is why these soldiers bearing this flag are Chinese? Both pieces in very good condition with a gilded spearhead border. Probably Centennial pieces made for the American market.
