A very rare Chinese export porcelain 8 1/2″ plate hand-painted in the rare and sought-after Yellow Fitzhugh pattern. Since its creation around 1785, the Fitzhugh pattern was produced in a variety of colors, and combinations of colors, and yellow seems to have been one of the more rarely created colors due to its difficulty in firing. This fine example, with only rim frits filled, is from the Hodroff Collection. 19th century. $6500.
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.
A particularly fine example of a rather rare pattern, this fine Chinese export porcelain 7 1/2″ plate is hand-painted in the very desirable Raspberry Fitzhugh design, centered with a gilded landscape roundel and cavetto vine border. Fitzhugh was produced in only seven colors and this is one of the rarer renderings of this design. Very good condition. Circa 1800.
Two fine examples of early 19th century Chinese export porcelain in the Blue Fitzhugh pattern. The oval one measuring 10″ x 12 3/4″; the more rectangular oval one 10 3/4″ x 13″. Both in very good condition and dating to circa 1800-1820. Priced individually, the smaller one $550.00, the larger one $750.00.
A very fine example of Chinese export porcelain in the rare Raspberry Fitzhugh pattern.

Very good condition. Circa 1800-1820.
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.
