Chinese Export American Eagle Tea Bowl Cup Saucer G. W. Initials c. 1790
Chinese Export American Eagle Tea Bowl Saucer. This beautifully painted pair handleless cup and saucers bears the initials GW. Probably not for George Washington but would be nice. Made for the American Market.

Blue enamel band to the interior of cup and saucer with star motif on both. This type of eagle is thought to be derived from the Massachusetts copper cent first minted with a similar eagle in 1787-88. It is a feature of this type of eagle that the width of shield in many cases dictated the size of the eagle's chest, giving the impression that the bird is rising from a broken shell. The head is often small (more like a sparrow-hawk) and with a simplification of line typical when a design was repeated a great many times over a considerable period.

Possibly from the Ladd Collection based on sticker to bottom. 2" H X 5 1/2" W. Documentation: China for the West, Howard & Ayers, p.

Condition: Faded paint, saucer has 2 small tight hairlines to the rim, small chip to back of cup. I will be listing an extensive collection of Chinese Export Porcelain, so please continue watching.
