A rather rare form, this Chinese export porcelain scalloped edge chamberstick served as a salesman’s sample of sorts as it is finely decorated and gilded with four separate border patterns and a monogram in order to display to potential clients and supercargoes what were some of the latest styles available from the talented decorators at the Chinese potteries. Very few of these survive, Historic Deerfield has an example of a pot-de-creme. Very good condition. Circa 1800. $4,200.00
