Antique 17th Century Chinese Blue and White Plate Made circa 1660

$780

About the Item

This 17th-century blue and white Chinese dish is bursting with energy. Made circa 1660, it is beautifully painted in the Kraak style. The plate was painted in two steps: an artist created an outline for each panel. Then, using the outline, the painters completed the dish. The cobalt blue goes beyond the outlines, creating beautiful deep blues filling the spaces. Our dish is painted in a typical Chinese Kraak form. It has wide rims with eight petal-shaped panels framing a central medallion. The center shows flowers before a seascape. Each of the eight panels offers flowers and geometric designs. The underside of the plate is decorated in cobalt blue with a simple flower and vine pattern around a double circle. Inside the circle, we see one of the "Eight Treasures." Dimensions: 8.5" diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $ 780 Background of Chinese Kraak Porcelains: Chinese Kraak porcelain is known for its blue and white plates, dishes, and bowls painted deep cobalt blue. Kraak decoration typically consists of a central medallion with a rim divided into eight sections with their own decorative content. Kraak porcelain was made in the Ming and early Qing dynasties and is one of the earliest blue and white porcelain styles made for the European market. It was first brought to Europe by the Portuguese. The name "Kraak" is a Dutch transcription of the Portuguese word 'Carraca,' or 'Carrack' in English, a ship the Portuguese used at the time. The term 'Kraak' appears to have been first used in the seventeenth century by the Dutch, and it is now the accepted name for this type of Chinese porcelain.
