A finely decorated Chinese export porcelain 6 1/4″ diameter saucer meticulously painted en grisaille with iron red detail with a central scalloped roundel centered with a pair of cockerels – the symbol of strength and endurance – surrounded with a wide border of elaborately scrolling peony and foliate decoration against a rich gilded ground. This must have been part of a once very lavish and expensive tea set, dating to the Yongzheng period circa 1730-1735.  One small line to the rim sealed, otherwise very good condition and superlative quality decoration, bearing an old Suchow & Seigal collection sticker.
