A truly impressive 18 1/2″ Chinese export porcelain platter and mazzarene decorated in vibrant Famille Rose enamels with richly detailed Mandarin court scenes; the platter with a scene of a great noble, or perhaps the Emperor himself, seated in a portico with attendants while noble personages are lined up to pay court; the mazzarene with a less decorous scene depicting a grand meal on a garden terrace with a guest sitting on the floor…perhaps one two many “libation cups”? Note the attention to detail with the servants and dishes of food. Both pieces edged with lush garden imagery with fretwork fences, birds, flowers and butterflies. Very good condition. Circa 1800-1810.
