Blue and White Chinese Export Plates a Set of Ten


A set of ten 18th century Chinese blue and white dishes made during the reign of the Qianlong Emperor (1736-1795). Hand-painted in light cobalt blue the centre of each plate shows a view of a scholar's garden featuring a garden fence, Taihu rocks, large peonies, and a willow tree. The cavetto is decorated with diamonds. The wide border is decorated with ruyi heads, scrolling vines and flowers. The hardness of the porcelain body, its smooth glazed surface, and the elegant underglaze blue cobalt design made this type of porcelain a favorite in Europe. Ruyi literally: ("as desired; as you wish") is a curved decorative object symbolizing power and good fortune in Chinese folklore. Dimensions: 9.25 inches diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $4,100 for the group.
