Chinese Export European-subject Saucer Dish For Mexican Market,
King Charles IV of Spain Accession Commemoration Service,
Dated 1791.
(NY8996/AKR)

Dimensions: 6 1/4 inches diameter x 1 2/5 inches high (15.88 cm diameter x 3.56cm)

The extremely rare Chinese Export Mexican-market saucer or saucer dish has a blue enamel & gold star border on the rim and a further blue enamel and gold husk chain band to the top of the inner well. The centre is painted with a central portrait bust of King Charles IV flanked by two "Roman soldiers" or marshals holding up the bust, one interestingly with a beard, all on a wall pedestal below a crown and with the date 1791 below in gold enclosed within a gold and red circular border.

Arranged around the edge of the circle is the following two lines of text: Progla Mado En La Ciudad De Valladolid De Michoacan/ Por Su Alferez R O Jose Bernardo
David Howard & John Ayers, China For The West, on page 457, plate #464, illustrates a dish from the same service from an article by SuzanneS. Mottahedeh, titled "Numismatic sources of Chinese export porcelain decorations", The Connoisseur, October 1969. The illustration on this dish is from the reverse of a proclamation medal by Geronimo Antonio Gil struck in 1791. The inscription reads Proclaimed in the City of Valladolid of Michoacan by Alfrerez R. D. Jose Bernado Foncerrada.

Jerónimo Antonio Gil (Spanish, Zamora 1731–1798 Mexico) struck at least six medals in Mexico between 1789 and 1791 to commemorate the accession of King Charles IV to the throne of Mexico.
