Ulysses S. Grant's personally-owned hand-painted porcelain plate, ordered while in China in 1879 after his meeting with Li Hongzhang during his post-presidency world tour. The beautiful plate measures 8.5″ in diameter, and features a blue-and-green fish at center, encircled by an ornate and intricate border of colorful flowers and butterflies. In fine condition. As one of just 24 hand-painted fish plates delivered to the Grants upon their return to America, this rare and impeccable piece reveals Grant's fine taste. Provenance: The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection.
