Impressive PAIR of 20″ Mandarin Platters #7710
A very dramatic pair of Chinese export porcelain platters, hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels with large central Mandarin scenes of courtly figures in expansive landscapes surrounded with a colorful border of fruits, flowers, and butterflies against a rich gilded ground. Barely fitting into our photo cube, each measuring 17″ x 20″ and certainly treasured over the past two centuries exhibiting minimal wear and in very good condition. Once part of a rather extensive and luxurious dinner service, circa 1810-1820. $9,500.00/pair.
