• This is an antique Chinese porcelain charger in an oval shape, which dates from the late Qing Dynasty to the early Republic of China period (circa 1900s-1920s). This particular pattern has a motif that features such good omens in life as career success, affluence, and abundant harvest. It has the old "Made in China" mark, which was among the earliest old "Made in China" (in one straight line rather than in two or three lines) mark used after the US Congress enacted the 1894 Stamp Act. This is probably one of the earliest examples of this pattern. (NB:The production of this pattern lasted for about 100 years, from the 1880s to the 1970s. The earlier products have much more detailed and exquisite drawings of the roosters. And the production marks, if any, are also a good indicator of age. Those made in the first 20 years are the most desirable.)
