Chinese Verte-Imari plate with peonies

The decoration of this beautiful plate combines the Imari and Famille Verte styles in one palette. This combination of styles has resulted in a very attractive piece. Depicted is a fenced Chinese flower garden with a large flowering peony bush. This central decoration is surrounded along the rounded well by three floral ornaments reserved on a trellis-diaper pattern band. The rim is decorated with three groups of flowers and pomegranates. This plate dates from the beginning of the reign of the Chinese emperor Qianlong (1736-1795), around 1740. The diameter of this plate is 9 inches (almost 23 cm).

Good, with an almost invisible 1.25-inch stress fracture in the base, some fritting to the rim and wear to the enameled highlights.

Qianlong, circa 1740.

Price $195
