An especially attractive and unusual Chinese export porcelain FitzHugh patterned plate hand-painted in two colors of enamel – sepia and green. The popular FitzHugh pattern was produced over the years in a variety of colors and in usually just a single color. This plate is part a small group where they experimented with using two colors and, as is apparent, to a really striking effect. Not very common and highly collectible, the intricate hand-rendered pattern is only accented more by the colors used here. Measuring 9 1/2″ in diameter and in very good condition. First quarter of the 19th century.
