Brilliant Raspberry Fitzhugh 9 3/4″ Plate #7233

A fine example of the Fitzhugh pattern in a very desirable color, the Chinese export porcelain 9 3/4″ dinner plate is meticulously hand-painted in a vibrant raspberry enamel. With only two small lines to the reverse sealed, it is in very good condition and dates to circa 1800.

 

Rare Form Kangxi Famille Verte Water Dropper #7223

A rare Kangxi period Chinese famille verte figural water dropper modeled in the form of Li Bai (701-762) a famous Tang Dynasty poet. Here he is shown in a bit of a drunken stupor lounging with a large wine pot. What a charming conceit for a scholar’s object! Please note his painstakingly painted and lavish garments featuring cranes, clouds, flower sprigs and the wine pot patterned with prunus blossoms against a ‘cracked ice’ ground. The rim of the wine pot is either a period piece of bronze work or a later, but still old, replacement. Either way, it is very finely cast and detailed. Measuring 8″ long and in very good condition. A similar example in the Jue Rui Tang Collection. Circa 1715.
