An over-sized Chinese export porcelain covered cream jug hand-decorated with wonderful exotic birds perched amongst the branches of a budding tree.  Measuring 6 3/4″ this cream jug (or possibly hot-water pot?) was decorated in China with the underglaze blue diapered borders and then the  pot was shipped blank to the Netherlands where Dutch decorators could finish it with designs to their customers’ liking. This piece in very good condition and with its cover with its original silver chain, is in the same pattern as a charming teapot we also have, also Item #7637.  Circa 1750. Priced individually.
