A very beautiful version of the American eagle on Chinese export porcelain, these superb American market saucers are centered with finely hand painted sepia eagles taken from the seal of the state of Rhode Island, each noble bird with a halo of golden stars is clutching a banner in its beak inscribed “In God We Hope” and supports a shield with an anchor (also a symbol of Hope) as well as the trumpet of Fame. Very good condition with only the slightest of wear, measuring 5″ in diameter and dating to circa 1800-1810.  These objects are great examples of the pride and confidence of our early republic. Priced individually at $1,275.00 each.
