In very fine condition. A minuscule chip on the end of one leaf stem and a slight bit of roughage on a half inch long gilded edge.

Chinese Export Porcelain Green Fitzhugh Deep Dishes

A set of four Chinese porcelain deep dishes in the green Fitzhugh pattern. These were produced for the western market beginning in the early 1800 and continued into the early 20th century. While difficult to accurately date, I believe these were produced in the earlier part of the 19th century.
