A wonderful pair of Chinese export porcelain Kangxi period famille verte scalloped rim teabowls and saucers, decorated with images of a vase with flowering branches within a fan-shaped reserve against a ground with antique and precious objects, the reverse with floral sprigs, and centered with a small rabbit within double rings. Add to that a rather fine noble provenance as one of the teabowls bears the auction sticker of a sale at Blenheim Palace, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Marlborough. That stately pile with its amazing architecture has hosted only one sale in its 300 year history of pieces from their extensive collections, and it appears these two fine teabowls were part of that sale. ┬áThe saucer measuring 4 1/2″ in diameter, the teabowl 1 1/2″ tall. In very good condition. Ex- Chait Collections. Circa 1700-1710.
