A charming and rare Chinese export porcelain handled cup and saucer made for the American market, decorated with Rhode Island’s symbol of Hope leaning upon her anchor within an ermine mantled shield-the epitome of  classical Federal period taste. The saucer measuring 5 1/2″ in diameter, the cup 2 5/8″ tall. Both in very good condition and dating to circa 1795-1800. Ex-Elinor Gordon collection.
