C. 1780 CHINESE EXPORT FAMILLE ROSE TEA BOWL
C. 1770 Chinese Export Famille Rose Tea Bowl measuring 1 3/4" in height and 3" in diameter. This tea bowl with the provenance of Elinor Gordon, the prime chinese export dealer in America. She has dealt and collected chinese export porcelain for well over 50 years from Villanova, Pa. And still today refers it to as Oriental Lowestoft. This tea bowl has a tiny nick of the ruffled top rim that is so unusual. A nice inside of cup decoration that is very well painted. No restoration. Very good condition. Who ever buys this tea bow is buying a piece of history, having bought a piece of chinese export porcelain that was once owned by the infamous Elinor Gordon whom I have had many interesting conversations with.
