C. 1840 CHINESE EXPORT SACRED BIRD AND BUTTERFLY SOUP
Circa 1840 Chinese Export Sacred Bird and Butterfly Shallow Soup Plate measuring over 9 7/8" in diameter and a hair over 1 1/2" in depth. To find this size soup plates in the bird and butterfly pattern is Rare. I remember years ago when I acquired a 200 piece set in Maine it had soup plates but they were about 9" in diameter as I recall. This is a beautiful plate with a nice tight pattern filled with orange birds, butterflies,tree branches and leaves. Very Good Condition with nice gilded border with no chips. Might be a little nick repair but nothing more than that no restoration that I can see.
