Pair Antique Blue and White Delft Chargers Made by "The Axe" circa 1780

$2,200per set


We are pleased to offer this pair of Dutch Delft blue and white chargers decorated in the center with an image of a delicate vase filled with chrysanthemums and peonies. The design in the center of the charger is derived from Chinese decoration where auspicious flowers were put in bamboo baskets as attractive interior decorative elements. The border of the charger is adorned with four floral panels, which alternate with four cobalt blue panels with fish-net patterns. The edge of each charger is painted with orange slip in the traditional style. Made in the 18th century, circa 1780, both chargers have the mark of "The Axe". Dimensions: 12.25" diameter Condition: Excellent Price: $2200 In the shop we also have a larger pair of chargers in this pattern (see 1stdibs Item Ref LU866513773192). This larger pair of chargers also have the mark of "The Axe", and were made circa 1780. The pair of larger chargers measure 14 inches diameter, condition: excellent, the price: $3400.
