Very Fine Kangxi Saucer Dish #4985A
A superlative Chinese export porcelain molded saucer dish with a barbed edge, thinly potted, richly glazed, decorated in underglaze blue and centered with a classic Chinese landscape deftly brushed in the “Master of the Rocks” style. The lotus border, in contrast to the spontaneously brushed landscape, is a careful study in meticulous rendering, the lotus theme repeating on the molded panels on the reverse side and surrounding a centered six-character mark. Measuring 8″ in diameter and, other than a few rim frits filled, in great condition. Kangxi period, circa 1690.
