Description

A Chinese export plate, imported to Europe during the first half of the Eighteenth Century as a blank, and over-decorated in Holland (Amsterdams Bont) with a delicate decoration in Kakiemon style.  The centre of the plate is decorated with two ‘banded hedges’ from which emerge exotic flowers and with two birds flying above. The rim of the plate is particularly nicely decorated with a European interpretation of the ‘three friends of Winter’ (pine, bamboo and prunus). Diameter 22.8cm (9”)

See plate 19 in ‘European Decoration on Oriental Porcelain’ by Helen Espir for a similar plate.

Dating:

First half of the Eighteenth Century

Condition:
This plate is in good condition, with two fine hairlines to the base, not visible from the front of the plate (see final image) and a few small rim nibbles. There is some rubbing to the black outlines of the central decoration.
