Batavia ware cup and saucer with Famille Rose insets

This Chinese teacup and saucer set has an attractive brown glaze on the exterior of the cup and the front of the saucer. This glaze is typical for the so-called Batavia wares. Reserved on the brown ground on both the cup and the saucer are alternating insets with Famille Rose flowers and large fruits. The decoration has attractive Famille Verte highlights. The reverse of the saucer is undecorated and the interior of the cup is decorated with a simple flower as well as a narrow ornamental band along the rim. This set dates from the middle of the reign of the Chinese emperor Qianlong (1736-1795), around 1750. The height of the teacup is about 1.5 inches (4 cm) and the diameter of the saucer is 4 inches (10.5 cm).

Perfect, with only minimal wear to the enameled highlights.

Qianlong, circa 1750.

Price $165
