A very well-painted Chinese export porcelain tea bowl and saucer, thinly potted and decorated en grisaille with figures in a Chinese landscape. We usually think of this grisaille method of decoration used for European special orders such as designs taken from engravings with Western subject matter, so we were delighted to have found a piece done in the Chinese taste. Very good condition. Late Yongzheng early Qianlong period. Circa 1740.
