Hold for Atlanta
A very desirable 19th century Chinese export rose medallion square form and lobed tray or platter. --- The medallions alternate between figural garden scenes and bird & floral scenes. Very nice detail and composition with the --- gold in the hair ornaments mostly intact. --- Cute birds & butterflies. Note that the detail pics are both larger than actual. Yet there is no deterioration of resolution. The colors are fresh due to good condition of this antique porcelain it is not that of the new repro export ware. Nice form also with slight lobe and cut corner effect. This tray is about 110-150 years old.
About 9" square. No chips cracks or repairs. Enamel & gold pretty much all there. --- Orange peel effect. The square server can be seen on p. 248, #664 of Schiffe's Chinese Export Porcelain.
A pretty hard to find form for your antique rose medallion collection. Don't miss it!
