A very desirable form and a very popular design, this Chinese export porcelain shell-shaped dish is decorated en grisaille¬†with the classic “Quaker and Cow” pattern and highlighted with gilded detailing. The original design purportedly comes from a drawing by Mary Hollingsworth Morris of Philadelphia and several services in sepia, black and green were produced. Measuring 9″ x 10″ and in good condition with only one small chip filled and very minor re-touch to the gilding. Illustrated in Schiffer’s China in America, page 172. Circa 1810. HOLD
