A really lavishly painted Chinese export porcelain breakfast tea bowl and saucer, dating from the Yongzheng period and richly decorated and detailed in Famille Rose enamels from a special order service bearing The Arms of Grice. The saucer centered with the full armorial shield crest and flourishes including what appears to be black boars all against a very detailed pink diapered ground with additional reserves of peony, prunus, lotus and chrysanthemums denoting the Four Seasons and edged with an intricate gilded scrolling border. The oversized tea bowl continues the same motifs, but centers on the image of the boar crest without the arms. Illustrated and discussed in Howard’s Chinese Armorial Porcelain, Vol. II, page 154. The saucer measuring 6 1/2″ in diameter and with a glaze line to the reverse on the rim. The tea bowl is 4 3/8″ inches in diameter and with a piece out professionally restored. Remarkable quality decoration. Circa 1730. Ex-Nelson Kline Collection.
