A truly elegant pair of Chinese export porcelain plates with botanical decoration, hand-painted in Famille Rose enamels with a central rose design, the rims with charming rococo style decoration. The well=detailed roses most likely after European botanical engravings of the period. Interesting and beautiful examples of European taste rendered on Chinese porcelain for the western market. Measuring 9″ in diameter and with only very minor rim frits and enamel fading, otherwise very fine condition. Qianlong period, circa 1760.
