19th C. chinese Fencai Caddy – Birds & Butterflies
Rare chinese Famille Rose Porcelain Tea Caddy, 19th Century
Birds, butterflies, flowers and fruits in a medailion are extremely fine painted in overglaze enamels in the famille rose palette. The medailon is surounded from a flower scroll in thik enamel. It seems to be a very unusual “marriage” of Canton and Peranakan / BABA NYONYA porcelain.
Excellent condition: one small chip at the rim, further only the typical traces of production and use – see photos.
Height: ca. 9,5 cm (without stand)
