A fine Chinese export porcelain plate decorated in Famille Rose enamels with images of koi  swimming about the center within a cavetto with a very elaborate gilded scrolling border, the outer rim with landscape vignettes alternating with with gilded branches of peony-all exquisitely rendered as one expects to find during this period of superb porcelain production. The koi is a symbol of conjugal harmony and happiness as they are believed to mate for life. Measuring 9″ in diameter with a line to the rim, otherwise very good condition. Circa 1730-1735.
