Minton Chinoiserie Dish
From the Collection of Mario Buatta
Mario loved finding unique pieces if they were also beautiful.
This is a rare early Minton porcelain dish with a wonderful hand-painted Chinoiserie scene. Made in England circa 1810. The dish features a delightful chinoiserie scene of a Chinese boy playing in a field. The pieces in this charming pattern were not identical: each piece would have portrayed figures performing a different activity. This pattern’s variety can be seen in a cup and saucer in this pattern, which we also acquired from Mario’s estate.
The reverse shows the Minton mark in underglaze blue with pattern number 539.
Dimensions: Dm 8.25 in. x H 1.5 in.
