Nanking Chinese export tureen with twisted applied handles, rosette finial, underglaze blue decoration on porcelain, gilding, floral motifs, ca 1840. Measures 13 3/4" wide, 10 1/2" high, and 9 1/4" deep. The glaze has a slightly blue/celadon tint over the white porcelain body, the decoration is in deep cobalt blue, the glaze shows pitting and some mineral deposits, always present in porcelains of this era. Both sides and lid have four sections of floral elements, with a central medallion on sides, and floral lobed finial on lid. This form is also considered the Fitzhugh pattern, with same design and spear design borders. The lid has gilding on the finial and around the edge of the lip. Wonderful size and beautiful rich blue decoration, this is a very fine export tureen. Condition is good, no breaks or losses, wear to gilding on finial and around edge of lid. Slight wear to bottom and bottom of lid. As it is antique and shows signs of usage and age, it is sold as is. Please see all photos for details and email any questions.
