The central arms within a scrolling gilded cavetto border, the rim with beautiful arching branches of peony – a revered flower in China, this piece combining both European and Chinese design elements exemplifying the worldwide cultural connections of the China Trade, and the superb quality achieved during this period. Measuring 9″ in diameter and in very good condition. Circa 1730. Ex-Nelson Kline Collection.
