Chinese C. 1850 4 Pc. Luncheon Place Setting Bird & Butterfly

Jan-Erik Nilsson of the Goteborg Ceramics Website, said when speaking of the ‘Bird and Butterfly’ pattern it is hard to imagine at one time this was actually the name of a Dinner Service, and now even individual pieces are very rare to find. This pattern is considered to be a variation hybrid of the Canton Famille Rose pattern, except this pattern used much finer details and lots of gilding.

It is not hard to see that these 170 year old pieces were never used, as a sailor would take a once in a lifetime trip to China, and bring back home to Nova Scotia the finest souvenir he could afford and in this case it was a single luncheon place setting in the ‘Bird and Butterfly’ pattern where they remained untouched for well over a century and a half. $Can 550.00 Dollars
