An unusual coloration for this very popular Chinese export porcelain Fitzhugh patterned plate, its intricate hand painted design colored in with a wash of lime green enamel. This pattern comes in a variety of colors ranging from the most common, blue, to some of the rarest – raspberry, black and yellow. This lime color is surely on the rarer end of the spectrum as we seldom come across an example; we speculate that possibly only one dinner service of this color could have been made as we’ve seen so few examples over the years. Measuring 9 1/2″ in diameter and in unusually fine condition with only a small chip restored. Circa 1825.
