An interesting and very charming Chinese export porcelain tea bowl and saucer made for the English market with a scene of two children leaving for school with their mother watching their departure from the doorstep. The scene taken from a mezzotint, after a painting by English artist George Morland. The tea bowl and saucer once in the Garbisch Collection, was retailed at some point through the venerable antiques department of Shreve Crump and Lowe in Boston, and was at one point also in the collection of much-respected ceramics scholar Vivian S. Hawes. The saucer measuring 5 1/2″ in diameter, the tea bowl 3 1/2″ and both in very good condition. Late 18th century. $950.
