Chinese Famille Rose deep plate with European patterns


Description
This Chinese export porcelain deep plate has a decoration which is directly derived from European examples. During the 18th century famous European factories, such as Lowestoft and Meissen, produced wares with attractively arranged flowers. These pieces attracted a lot of interest, and the European East India companies soon started commissioning similar pieces in China. This plate is an excellent example of this practice. The center of this plate is decorated with a finely penciled flower arrangement. The rim is decorated with a band with floral cartouches. The diameter of this plate is 9 inches (22.5 cm).

Condition
Excellent, with three tiny frits to the rim.

Age
Qianlong, circa 1780.

Price $295
