A Chinese export porcelain Yongzheng period 9″ plate, decorated in Famille Rose enamels and centered with the Arms of Van Den Bergh, the central coat-of-arms featuring a shield with three coursing hounds, surrounded by a profusion of scrolling foliate flourishes, the border with delicate flowering branches of peony and chrysanthemum. Hendrik van den Bergh was born in Haarlem in 1691 and in the 1720s and 1730s made four trips to the Orient as a V.O.C. ship’s captain out of Amsterdam, most likely when this service was ordered. Illustrated and discussed in Kroe’s Chinese Armorial Porcelain for the Dutch Market, page 177. Re-touch to the central armorial enamels, otherwise, good condition. Circa 1730-1735.
