Great Set of Mandarin Plates #7408 Priced Individually Sold
A rather attractive set of Chinese export porcelain “borderless plates”, decorated in Famille Rose enamels with courtly Mandarin scenes. Each vignette rendered across the entire surface of the plate, treating the subject more like a painting than an enclosed view as one sees on many plate designs. Each image different, with a richly enameled and detailed scene full of narrative. Measuring 7 3/4″ in diameter and in very good condition with only the slightest area of stacking wear on two of them-barely discernible-and all dating to circa 1820.
