CHINESE EXPORT HAND SPITOON Ca 1740

$700.00

A Chinese export hand spitoon decorated in underglaze blue with over glaze red added. Circa 1740. A rare form in perfect condition. The red overglaze gives the originally blue and white piece the coloration of “Chinese Imari”, a very popular decoration for the European market. The red was added most likely in Canton, China early in the 18th Century.
