C. 1820-1840 CHINESE EXPORT ROSE MEDALLION MAZZARIN
Circa 1820-1840 Chinese Export Rose Medallion Mazzarin/Drainer in Excellent Condition and Very Nice Quality. Originally the mazzarin would be matched up with a platter and be used as a drainer when you would lay a piece of meat like a roast on the drainer. This is one of the better qualitry mazzarin's that I have seen or had over the years. Since they were primarily used to drain the fat off of a piece of meat or fish, they would get a lot of abuse. Very Rarely will you find a mazzarin of this outstanding quality. It is oval in shape and this one measures 13 1/2" X 10 I/2". Excellent Condition with no chips, cracks or Restoration. Quite often I have a cabinet maker make a stand for them as it makes a very nice table next to a chair. The second image shows the picture of a possible stand for this wonderful piece of chinese export porcelain.
