18th Century Chelsea Porcelain Two Handles Leaf Moulded Dish.

Molded as a trompe l’oeil basket with grape leaves and vines as the handles.

Glazed, and in the white only, a nod to the popularity of blanc-de-chine dishes made in Asia and at Meissen.

Triple saggar pad marks within the oval foot rim.

11 5/16” L.

Tiny loss to terminate of one branch-form handle. Two noticeable dots of frit to surface. Scattered black frit dots elsewhere, typical for fired wares at the factory.

Provenance: Sothebys, 1997.

Robin Henry Ceramic Collection, New York.

Collection #156.
