An English 18th century porcelain pickle dish made at the Limehouse Manufactory, in perfect condition. This exceptionally rare piece is molded in the form of a scallop shell, and is painted in blue with a Chinese vase containing two feathers. The vase is in front of a partially unrolled scroll, with an insect to the right and three flocks of birds in the distance. The border has three feathers entwined with ribbons, while the reverse has two branches of leaves.

The dish is 3 3/4 inches in length and 3 1/4 inches in width. Dishes of this type are often blurred, but in this case, the painting is crisp, and there are no chips or flaws of any kind.
