From a French estate This set is very finely and thinly potted. The saucers are nearly eggshell thin (hence their condition after ages of wear).

About Ascot Court Antiques Ascot Court Antiques is a family-run business based in the beautiful town of Moraga, California. We are purveyors of authentic, high-quality, and affordable period Chinese ceramics. We have sold pieces to collectors located in the USA, China, Britain, France, Denmark, and many other countries. We firmly believe that beyond art investment, connoisseurship of Chinese ceramics is about aesthetic and cultural cultivation. It is always a great pleasure to hold an old piece and know that behind its materiality there is a treasure trove of history and narrative that transcends human lifespans and dynastic epochs. The pieces we offer are thus always compelling and interesting works of art. However, we do not believe that collecting Chinese ceramics is a socioeconomically elite affair: our stock will always mix high-end and rare pieces with affordable but lovely minyao and export wares. Please purchase with confidence. We take pride in our serious devotion to scholarship and research, and are pleased to offer authenticity guarantees to everything in our catalogue.
