A beautiful pair of Chinese export porcelain plates of shaped form, decorated in famille rose enamels, and centered with a rare image of a stag being pursued through a landscape by two hunting dogs, the cavetto with a finely rendered scaled pattern contained by a gilded rococo border. The lightness and elegance of the rococo continues around a rim of ¬†floral sprig reserves, alternating with polychrome and bianco-sopra-bianco renderings, all against a grisaille cellwork border.Measuring 9 1/2″ in diameter, one plate with a Y-shaped line to the bottom, the other with a 1 1/2″ line to the rim, both with glaze fritting around the edges, otherwise good condition, the imagery and design quite lovely. Circa 1750-1760.
