Five clobbered dishes with flower baskets

This set consists of five matching Chinese export porcelain dishes originally decorated in underglaze blue with a fenced willow garden. This central decoration is surrounded along the rounded well by a trellis-diaper band. The rim is decorated with three flower spays. These dishes are typical examples of Chinese export porcelain from the reign of the Chinese emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) and date from around 1750. Shortly after their arrival in Europe, they were over-decorated with a polychrome flower basket in a European manner. This clobbered decoration is typical for the so-called “Amsterdams Bont” wares. The diameter of this attractive series of dishes is almost 6.5 inches (just over 16 cm).

Good, with substantial wear to the enameled highlights and some chipping to the rim. In addition, one dish has a 3.5-inch hairline in the base.

Qianlong, circa 1750 (clobbering mid 18th century)

Price $475 (entire set)
