Qing Dynasty “Chine de Commande” Blue and White Small Dish with American Eagle Design


A Blue and white dish produced for the United States in China during the Qing dynasty. It is a type of Chinese export porcelain so-called “Chine de commande”. The picture is the American Eagle of the Seal of the State of New Mexico, designed shortly after the organization of the Territorial Government. Since the United States was the largest trading partner in the Qing dynasty in the latter half of the 19th century, it was believed to be given to the United States as a state-related souvenir.

Two short hairlines on the rim, but the condition is generally good. The hairline on the base does not pass through. A similar piece is listed in the “Chinese Export porcelain in North America” catalogue.
