Circa 1840 Chinese Export Blue Canton Vegetable Dish with Associated Cover. The vegetable dish itself measures 10 5/8" X 9 3/8" X 3" in height. The inside dimensions where the cover would set on is 9 5/8" X 8 1/2". On the bottom of this piece, reads as follows: 1996.CG.1134. I believe that was a inventory number and this was a deaquisition piuece out of a museum. The quality and the color is very good. The top was purchased by me elsewhere and I have performed the marriage of these two pieces. To begin with the cover is also of very good quality and blue color is slighter lighter than the blue color of the dish. The cover is also of very good quality and has a beautiful finial. The rain and cloud border of both pieces are of the same design and match perfectly. The bottom of the cover measures 8 5/8" X 7 1/2", so it is quite apparent it is smaller that the matching cover should be. The cover has been in my possession for years and the bottom was just recently purchased in the North Shore area of Massachusetts, near the Peabody Essex Museum in Peabody, Ma. Which as you know is where the finest chinese export museum is located.
