An especially beautiful Chinese export porcelain Kangxi period charger decorated in Famille Verte enamels, centered with an elegantly rendered deer within a landscape, beneath a pine, a crane flying overhead and with the outer border also painted with flying cranes as well. The crane, deer, pine, bamboo and odd little scrolled plant called a ruyi all being auspicious symbols imparting messages for wealth, nobility, success, longevity in marriage, long-lasting love and loyalty, endurance, power and good fortune that would have been apparent to the Chinese painter of this piece, but surely would have been lost on the European consumer who acquired the piece.  Either way, positively packed with auspicious energy, a very fine piece, the vibrantly enameled figures standing out against the white porcelain ground. Measuring 15″ in diameter and with only a line to the reverse sealed, otherwise, very good condition. Circa 1700-1720.    $3,600.00
