About

Blue and white dragon dish. Delft, 1722-1757 The Greek A pottery Mark: AIK, period J van der Kool (1722-1757) Dish with blue and white decoration of a dragon on a dense ground of flowers and foliage. The well is undecorated. The border is painted with six cartouches, each filled with three peaches each and separated from one another by trellis-work. Judging from a large number of surviving pieces, this decoration must have enjoyed considerable popularity in the eighteenth century. It is used on teapots, salts, vases, pots, bowls, tea caddies, beer jugs, spittoons, oil and vinegar sets, puzzle jugs and even egg cups. Customers could perhaps put together a service themselves by combining different shapes with this decoration. The border with cartouches and trellis-work is copied directly from Chinese porcelain plates and bowls of the Kangxi period (1662-1722). However, the centre decoration has no direct parallel from the Kangxi period. Dragons or other animals on a dense ground of flowers and foliage were painted on Chinese porcelain as early as the sixteenth century, and such a decoration probably served as a model for this Delft design. The dragon decoration was most likely developed at The Greek A pottery. The earliest pieces known are two pots and a vase with the AK mark for Adriaen Kocxs (1686-1701). They are in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum. Dimensions: diameter 34.5 cm / 13.38 in. Condition: is very good considering its age of 280 years. Usual small rim chips. I carefully package all items in a double-box and use first-class packaging material.
