These wonderful Chinese export porcelain Kangxi plates have the fine potting, brilliant glaze and vibrant cobalt blue decoration for which this period is so well known. The unusual design is a veritable riot of flowers with a central roundel of flowering plants within a densely packed border of blossoms, the motif continuing around the rim with a profusion of buds, blossoms and leaves. Measuring 9 1/2″ in diameter, described in Dutch VOC inventories as a “Double Plate”. One with a line to the reverse, sealed, and very, very minor rim roughness as can be expected, but otherwise in very good condition. Circa 1690. $650.00 each.
