A blue and white hand painted Canton oval serving dish with a rain cloud border under stars and an outward turned rim decorated with lines of rain. The interior with the usual Canton scene including bridge, pagodas, sailboats and islands in the distance. The bottom unglazed and showing good orange peel from the firing. 8 7/8 inches (22.5 cm) long, 6 ¾ inches (17 cm) and 1 ½ inches (4 cm). Circa 1850.

Condition: No chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. One fairly large firing flaw at the foot of the bridge and a few other smaller firing bubbles or losses to glaze.

This small serving dish has good color and decoration. The decorated rim indicates that it never had a cover. Nice small size.
