Object Description

Qianlong Famille Rose Armorial Porcelain Tea bowl and saucer – c1760 Chinese 18th century.
The arms are of Shaw of Eltham then in Kent. they show six arrows tied together and a black Chevron with Ermine tails in white and three Fusils again with Ermine tails to the centre
In Chinese Armorial Porcelain (CAP) Vol 1 there are the arms of Spencer Impaling Shaw page 170. This coat of arms lacks the baronet helm and I am indebted to Angel Howard – of Heirloom and Howard – of CAP volumes 1 and 2 part and sole authoress, for some attribution for this version of the arms
The arms in CAP 1 are for the second Baronet and his wife, this baronet was the paymaster for the East India Company and three of his sons were also in the East India Company associated with the Lebanese trade. These arms may have something to do with them but it may also be from an earlier generation.
Armorial porcelain is such a wonderful area for collecting especially for the history and the research it can lead to
