Pair Chinese Export Porcelain Chargers, Ca. 1740

China Ca. 1740

A very fine example of Chinese advanced skill in porcelain manufacturing. At that time Europeans were only in the later stages of experimenting in successful porcelain production. The rim of the chargers are superbly decorated in finely engraved “bianco sopra bianco” white enamel.

One charger bears a sticker from Elanor Gordon, the former Grand Dame of Chinese Export Porcelain.

Rococo Style Wall Sconces, Carved and Silver Gilt Pair

Hand carved pine with gesso and patinated oxidized silver gilt. They appear to be 1st quarter of the 20th Century and electrified around the same time or a little later. The original models for these suggest 18th Century England as they are more slender than many of the heavier Continental examples.
