Pair of Chinese Imari plates with pomegranates


Description
This is a very attractive pair of Chinese export porcelain plates with an excellent decoration in red, blue and gold, the typical Imari style. These beautiful plates are perfect examples of the first Chinese Imari wares produced during the reign of Kangxi. They date from around 1720. The decoration consists of a large flower with twelve petals. The center of the flower displays four pomegranates. Each petal displays a floral scene. Three of these petals as well as the rim have an attractive washed blue color, a design element typically found on the Chinese Imari wares from the Kangxi era. The resulting design is quite attractive. The reverse is decorated with two flower branches. This pair of plates represents the best Chinese Imari produced during the 1st half of the 18th century. The diameter of these plates is 8.5 inches (just over 21.5 cm).

Condition
Virtually perfect with only some minor fritting to the rim.

Age
Kangxi, circa 1720.

Price $795 (pair)
