A fine example of Chinese export porcelain made for the American market, in this case Rhode Island, decorated with a version of the American eagle behind on oval reserve ¬†with the gilded initials JF for John Brown Francis (1791-1864), at one time the state’s governor and then one of its U.S. Senators. The cup measuring 4 3/8″ in diameter, the saucer 6 1/4″, both pieces in good condition, slight re-touch to the gilding. Early 19th century.
