CHINESE ARMORIAL EXPORT PORCELAIN COLLECTORS PIECE. 1733 Arms of Lee of Coton Armorial Plate. Arguably the most notable Armorial Plate featured among field scholars. Decorated on the rim with four very fine river scenes en grisaille. Punctuated by two reserves in rouge-de-fer and gold. The river scenes are alternately of London (view from Southwark with London Bridge in the foreground and the city on the far side of the river) and of the Pearl River just below Canton (with a fort in the foreground and wooden huts before the walls of the city on the further bank). One of three services bearing the arms of Lee of Coton, only the one service in en grisaille as shown. Perhaps the finest armorial service ever ordered by an English family. This piece has been restored and rim scenery shows signs of wear. The front displays beautifully though one can see a repaired break upon closer inspection. The back shows much of the repair work and could stand further restoration. CONDITION NOTE : Carefully examine each image for flaws, cracks, restoration, and alike. Every attempt has been made to accurately represent the item for sale and it’s condition. DIMENSIONS : 9 inches round and approximately a 1 inch drop from rim to base.
