Description composed by world renowned Asian expert & appraiser, Mr. Anthony Lee. His bio is below.

This is from an important American collection of 1700's export and Imperial Chinese porcelain acquired in the 1960's - 1/5 pieces offered. China, ca 1760. Oriental Lowestoft Chinese Export Famille Rose Armorial Porcelain Plate - Wallop, Earl of Portsmouth. Of dinner plate form with foliate rim - four points and eight indentations, the rim with four large blooms alternating four smaller with leaves and buds, the depression with gilt spearhead border and the armourial crest incorrectly painted with a Mermaid below a Earl's coronet with a micro and on a wreath - crest of Clotworthy Skeffington, 5th Viscount Masserine. Oblong plate of the same service, same foliate edge and border and same crest illustrated in Howard, Armorial Chinese Porcelain, pg. 528. It has some minor back rim damage/restoration. It measures approx. 9" across.

From Howard - Chinese Armorial Porcelain, pg 528

The crest is not painted accurately, but is clearly intended to be a mermaid holding in the dexter hand a mirror and in the sinister a comb all proper beneath an earl's coronet. (the wreath is or and sable). Two earl's bore the crest of Portsmouth and of Masserine. (The Chinese artist mistook the mermaid's hair for a shawl and she is painted with an almost shorn head and a shawl held in the sinister hand).

Clotworthy Skeffington, 5th Viscount Masserine, descened from Sir William Skeffington of Skeffington in the sixteenth century, was advanced to the earldom in 1756. His eldest son Clotworthy, born in 1743, succeeded in 1757 and would have come of age in 1763. He married firstly in 1789 and died in 1805.

John Wallop, for whom it is likely this service was made, succeeded his grandfather as 2nd Earl of Portsmouth (who had been created Baron Wallop and Viscount Lymington in 1720 and an earl in 1743) in 1762. In the following year, also aged 21, he married Urania, daughter of Coulson Fellowes of Hampstead, an heir to the estate of Sir John Fellowes, Bt. He had three sons, the eldest of whom succeeded him at his death in 1796.

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.


is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.

Treat all of your customers as if they are family.

Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.

BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.

ONE - Who We Deal With

We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.

TWO - Shipping Charges

We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!

THREE - International Shipping

We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.

FOUR - Insurance

's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.

FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted

We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.

SIX - Time Frame To Pay

We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )

SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame

We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.

EIGHT - Local Pickup

Sometimes it makes sense to come by and pickup your items. Sometimes an item is just too big for any other option. If you've arranged local pickup with us, you must pickup the item within 30 days otherwise it will be subject to storage fees or relisting.

Finally, NINE - Communication

Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
