Fine Chinese plate with peonies

The decoration of this deep plate is executed in extremely fine detail. Such detailed decorations are typical for the blue and white wares made during the reign of the Chinese emperor Yongzheng (1723-1735). This plate certainly is an excellent example from his reign. The decoration consists of a large peony group. This central decoration is surrounded along the rounded well by flower cartouches reserved on an ornamental band. This design element is reminiscent of the earlier Kangxi era. The rim is decorated with a garland with flowers, leaves and fruits. The plate has an attractive brown rim. The diameter of this deep plate is almost 9 inches (22.5 cm).

Excellent, with some small chips to the rim (largest 0.15-inch, others smaller) as well as some kiln dust in the glaze.

Yongzheng, circa 1730.
