Sacred Bird & Butterfly

Shop / Home / China / Sacred Bird & Butterfly

The original of this magnificent Chinese export porcelain service is in the dining room of Charleston's famed Nathaniel Russell House, c.1808. Butterflies, a popular design pattern in China, are often found as decoration on porcelain. Perhaps the popularity of the butterfly stems from the fact that the Chinese word for butterfly, tieh, is a pun which expresses the wish that the owner might live to a ripe old age. Iron Red with 22K. Gold rim.
