A really beautiful pair of Chinese export porcelain Famille Rose-decorated reticulated saucer dishes, each centered with a classic design of exotic birds amongst blossoming peony and rockwork, all within a reticulated border painted in a mottled design (perhaps in imitation of tortoiseshell?) All together very elegantly designed typical of the refinement of the mid-18th century. Measuring 8 3/4″ in diameter and one in very good condition, the second with a bit of the rim and reticulation nicely restored. Mid-18th century.  $775.00 the pair.
