Lot Essay

Probably ordered by the Van Overveldt family of The Hague. See Dr. J. Kroes, Chinese Armorial Porcelain for the Dutch Market, Den Haag, The Netherlands, 2008, p. 115, where he notes, "In view of the extraordinarily large size and rich decoration of the chargers the actual commissioner must have been very wealthy." The significance of 'PAMEN' is unknown.
The Tibor Collection was formed over decades, growing to encompass every category of Chinese export porcelain, from small, charming teawares to massive pairs of important jars. The collector had a deep appreciation for the magnificent porcelains made for New Spain as well as for the lifelike charm and elegance of Chinese porcelain figure and animal models.
