Chinese Rose Canton Mandarin Porcelain Shrimp Dish, Ca. 1840

China Ca. 1840

A fine example with strong colors and delineation. The surface has an orange peel glaze. The small central Mandarin court yard scene is surrounded by flowers, leafage, butterflies, an exotic bird and a pair of kissing carp.
