A fine Chinese export porcelain quatrefoil-shaped serving dish very well-painted in the Orange Fitzhugh pattern, the quality of the design made even more attractive being centered with a bold armorial crest and motto of a hand clenching a truncheon and inscribed Je le Maintiendrai.  From a service made for the Nesbitt family of County Westmeath, Ireland.  Illustrated and discussed in Howard’s Chinese Armorial Porcelain, vol. I, page 691. Measuring 8 1/2″ square, combining beautiful quality and superb condition. Circa 1810.
