Mid 19th C. Blue and White Canton Porcelain Shrimp DishMid 19th C. Blue and White Canton Porcelain Shrimp DishMid 19th C. Blue and White Canton Porcelain Shrimp Dish

Presented for your consideration, is a beautiful blue and white Canton porcelain shrimp dish, circa 1840. Generally used as a serving dish, shrimp dishes have an obscure origin. The form may have originally derived from the shape of a shell and are beloved by collectors.

The style and quality of this Shrimp Dish is very good. The color is excellent and the painting well executed. There is minor chipping to the top section of the inner rim commensurate with age. This piece is part of an important collection that was assembled by a prominent Nashville collector over 50 years ago, most of the collection having been purchased from top-notch New England galleries.

Size: 9 ½" Width by 10 1/4" Depth by 2" Height
