Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Diameter: 8½ inches; 21.5cm
A very fine pair of octagonal dinner plates enamelled with a pair of roosters on a blue rock, the rim with blue floral reserves on a pink diaper ground, the outer border in green, the underside of the rim chamfered.
The quality of painting on these plates is similar to that found on many of the best eggshell pieces and the thinning of the rim suggest that these were intended for the same collectors, while being thicker and stronger.
