Antique Chinese Imari Charger with Floral Decoration

About

Why we love it: Look at the image! This beautiful Chinese Imari porcelain charger is dated to the Qianlong period of the Qing dynasty, circa 1750. The charger has a vivid palette of orange red, cobalt blue, mahogany and gold. In the central panel, we see chrysanthemum, lotus, and peony flowers in full bloom emanating from a stylized tree trunk. The decoration is outlined in a golden color, which gives the design a luxurious touch. The wide rim of the dish is adorned with a combination of both realistic and mythical flowers. Typical of the Chinese Imari ware at that time the back of the charger bears a sketch of two branches of plum blossoms. Background of Chinese Imari porcelains: In the late 17th century, Japanese potters in Arita first made export porcelains with elaborate gilt design to cater to European consumers. As the wares were shipped abroad from the port of Imari, this category of brilliantly enameled porcelain was conventionally known as “Imari ware.” From the early 18th century, Chinese artisans followed the Japanese example and manufactured similar Imari-style porcelain products identified by connoisseurs as “Chinese Imari ware”. Our refined charger is an excellent example of mature Chinese Imari Porcelain for the West.
