A remarkably fine pair of Chinese export porcelain 10″ soup  plates meticulously hand-painted in the Raspberry Fitzhugh pattern – one of the more sought-after colors in this pattern – each centered with a gilded roundel depicting a bucolic scene with a horse and carriage, the fine, untouched gilded decoration continuing around the cavetto with a meandering vine pattern.  In stunning virtually perfect condition, one of the best examples we’ve ever had. Circa 1810-1820.
