A rare Chinese sepia and gilt Fitzhug European-subject saucer, Jiaqing period circa 1800-1810. ca 3.7 cm. high and 19.5 cm. Ø.
The central roundel decorated with a river landscape with a village, a farmer pointing at his cows with a walking stick, a traveler on a bridge, houses and trees, the rim with flower-shaped cartouches with diaper patterns, flowers, insects and meander motives, minor wear to the gilding.
Named after 2 former directors of the East India Company, the Fitzhugh pattern had a great success in America. This special pattern appears circa 1800 and is very rare.
