A fantastic Chinese export porcelain soup plate in the Green Fitzhugh pattern made for the American Market centered with well-rendered image of a spread eagle taken from the Great Seal of the United States, clutching an olive branch in one talon and a quiver of arrows in the other, with a banner inscribed E Pluribus Unum in its beak, and supporting a shield with the gilded initials AF of the original owner, as yet unidentified, all within a brilliant green Fitzhugh design. Measuring 9 3/4″ in diameter and with two lines to the reverse rim restored, otherwise in good condition and a very fine example of the American eagle.  Circa 1825.
