    Extremely Rare And Important China Plate Picturing James Monroe As President
    Portrait surrounded by "James Monroe... President of the United States." Attractively trimmed in goldleaf around portrait and border. Three-dimensional display items for Monroe are exceedingly tough. A small cup with his portrait in Slater's April, 2004 sale fetched slightly over $20,000- with buyer's premium. This beautiful plate was manufactured in Paris (at this time all ceramics sold commercially in America were imported) for the U.S. market. We know of only three other examples in collector's hands, putting this plate roughly on a par in rarity with the cup cited above. Condition is just super. Diameter 9 1/4".
