Chinese Export Armorial Sauce Boat and Under Plate, Ca. 1820

China Ca. 1820

A Chinese Porcelain sauce boat and under plate probably made for the British market. Each piece decorated with blue and white patterned borders usually seen on Fitzhugh patterned items with central armorial crest and shield. The crest appears to be a bear’s paw. The shield with a rampant lion, three gilt pectin shells, a smaller quartered shield all bordered by wreaths and a bow tie.

For some technical reason the images have been reversed and the lion faces the opposite direction shown.

Luminous Landscape Attributed to American Charles Codman

A lovely sunset landscape attributed to Portland, Maine artist Charles Codman (b. 1800, d.1842). Codman’s work is represented in several US museums (see artist biography section on my gallery home page) and most recently the Portland Museum of art mounted a retrospective in 2003 of Codman’s work which is described on their web site.
