CHINESE EXPORT BLUE & WHITE EUROPEAN SCENE PLATE
$375.00 AUD

Chinese export European scene plate

Qainlong c1755.

Measures 9" Widest point.

This fine Qianlong period blue and white plate featuring a European Dutch river scene with a floral swag border.In this case it is clear that a Delft tile very similar to the one illustrated was taken to China as a pattern. The Chinese copied the unusual building, the tree behind, the Dutch figure, the railings leading down to the shore-but they added their own river shore on the other bank and a sampan in between.See : A Tale of Three Cities, Canton, Shanghai & Hong Kong (By the Late David S. Howard, Sotheby) Page 59, item 56. David Howard Shows a Dish of this Pattern Next to a Delft Pottery Tile.The plate is in good condition, one small rim flake which can be seen in the photographs and slight plate stacking marks to the glaze.
