A rather fine Chinese export porcelain armorial plate hand-decorated in Famille Rose enamels with a rather unusual central diamond-form medallion with the image of a bee. The arms are those of d’Arvincourt with de Gergy accollee. The richly diapered raspberry border is broken with alternating cartouches bearing the family’s arms and crests. Measuring 9″ in diameter and in very good condition with the exception of two very small areas retouched on the rim border. Late Yongzheng/early Qianlong, circa 1737.
