Finely Rendered Nativity Scene Plate #7462 Sold
A beautifully decorated Chinese export porcelain 9″ dinner plate hand-painted en grisaille with gilded details with a central image of the Nativity within an elaborate scrolling and foliate rococo border. Almost certainly taken from a European print source, the painter meticulously rendering the scene in the line work and crosshatching he was copying from an engraved print. Very good condition with only a slight line to the rim of the reverse. Circa 1745.
