Sepia Fitzhugh Plates #7435 – I Sold

A pair of meticulously hand-painted Chinese export porcelain dinner plates rendered in the Sepia Fitzhugh pattern, in very good condition with only the slightest of stacking wear. The Fitzhugh pattern originated around 1785 and this popular design went through a range of versions in different colors, the Sepia dating to circa 1820. $875.00 ea.

Rare Color Lime Green Fitzhugh Plate #7416

An unusual coloration for this very popular Chinese export porcelain Fitzhugh patterned plate, its intricate hand painted design colored in with a wash of lime green enamel. This pattern comes in a variety of colors ranging from the most common, blue, to some of the rarest – raspberry, black and yellow. This lime color is surely on the rarer end of the spectrum as we seldom come across an example; we speculate that possibly only one dinner service of this color could have been made as we’ve seen so few examples over the years.  Measuring 9 1/2″ in diameter and in unusually fine condition with only a small chip restored.  Circa 1825.  $650.00

Rare Form Orange Fitzhugh Warming Dish #7300

Always a pleasing and popular pattern, this Chinese export porcelain Orange Fitzhugh covered warming dish is an especially interesting form as it has an interior serving dish divided into two compartments. Nicely painted, and from a bespoke service with monogram roundels inscribed with the initial B, this rare form is in good condition other than a small bit of enamel wear and some glaze losses to the interior dish divider. Measuring 10 1/2 in diameter x 5″ tall. Circa 1820.

Handsome Blue Fitzhugh Compote #7258c

A very fine Chinese export porcelain shaped compote decorated in the Blue Fitzhugh pattern, the handsome and elegant form taken from  European forms of the period. 4 1/2″ x 12′ x 9″. Very good condition. Circa 1800-1820.

 

Two Fine Small Blue Fitzhugh Platters #7241c,

Two lovely examples of Chinese export porcelain in the Blue Fitzhugh pattern. The small oval platter one measuring 7 1/4 x 10 1/8″, the more rectangular form oval measuring 7 7/8″ x 9 7/8″. Both in very good condition and dating to circa 1800-1820. Priced individually at $450.00.

 

Rare 9 3/4″ Raspberry Fitzhugh Plate #6093

A very fine example of Chinese export porcelain in the rare Raspberry Fitzhugh pattern. Very well hand-painted and centered with a gilded roundel depicting a scene of a horse and cart in a country landscape along with an elegant scrolling gilded vine motif encircling the cavetto. Very good condition. Circa 1800-1820.

 

Rare Two Color Fitzhugh Dish #4993

A nice example of the two color Fitzhugh pattern combining here in this berry dish, both an orange lattice border and a sepia enameled center, all highlighted with gilding. Measuring 8″ in diameter and in good condition with only two very short lines sealed to the rim of the reverse. Ex-Elinor Gordon Collection. Circa 1820. $1,450.00
