Rare Form Orange Fitzhugh Reticulated Basket #7771 Sold

A highly unusual form, this wonderful Chinese export porcelain reticulated basket is decorated in the Orange Fitzhugh pattern and centered with a central roundel with the monogram M, the basket motif continued onto the base with a molded woven pattern. Obviously from a special order service and the form most likely after English examples of the period.  Other than two small glaze losses to the rim, it is in ‘as found’ condition with a line across the bottom of the piece that does not to appear to have effected any of the reticulation; how this piece survived intact is as unusual as the form itself. Measuring 3″ x 9 1/2″, the only one we’ve had in thirty years. Circa 1820.

 

SPOONER FAMILY PAIR OF GREEN FITZHUGH SOUP PLATES #7725

An attractive pair of Chinese export porcelain 10″ soup plates in the Green Fitzhugh pattern, each centered with a gilded letter S, from a service made for the SPOONER family of Plymouth, Massachusetts, most likely Captain Nathaniel Spooner (1758-1826).  The family has a long history in Plymouth and their home still stands as a house museum.  Slight re-touch to the gilded initials, otherwise plates are in good condition.  Early 19th century.  $375.00 each.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green Fitzhugh Mug #7594

A vibrantly painted Chinese export porcelain mug decorated in the Green Fitzhugh pattern. Approximately 5″ tall and in good condition.  Circa 1820.

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.

Very good condition. Circa 1800-1820.
