Circa 1736 - 1795 and they measure 4 1/2" in diameter and 3/4" high. These beautiful stands/plates are surrounded by a 1/4 hand painted gold gilt cords on a pigeon blood ground.The interior is a gorgeous incised sgrafitto enamel decoration with four floral hand painted decorations and then the center has the hand painted Shou character roundel in red. The back sides are showing the Imperial bat designs and are inscribed with an under glaze Qianlong 6 character seal mark and they are of the period. The 6 character seals are all done by hand. We feel these are the "creme de la creme" in both color and design. We are pricing them at a low price, as these are the real thing.
We feel these cup stands/plates are in exceptional condition for the period, wear commensurate with age and use, so please look at photos. The green cup stand/plate has very minor rubbing and a very minor chip along the outside edge (less than an 1/8) of the center rim, which could easily be fixed. The upper rim in this area is flat and exceptional.This would be a great opportunity to own a great find. We will break it down for you upon end of sale in the invoice. If you have any questions or concerns, we are easy to get along with. We have photographed every part for you, so that you can see the condition. Feel free to ask any questions or if you need more detailed photos, we are easy to deal with.

As most people know, these pieces become more beautiful with age because of movements and distress in the woods, some having restoration. Spindle turnings will not be uniform and swell unevenly with age. Wood tends to get stress fractures on support systems and where wide board construction is used. Eighty-five percent of 18th Century veneers have had some restoration during their life.Pine secondary woods might fracture, making overlays and veneers have the same fracture lines. Old finishes might alligator, fade, fish-eye or darken depending on where the pieces were placed. All of these are desired by a true collector and gives it personality. Do not expect these early pieces to be like new. These pieces age gracefully just as we do, giving them unique personality.
