Yongzheng/Qianlong Period Cockerel Plate #7265 SOLD
A Chinese export porcelain octagonal form plate richly enameled in the Famille Rose palette-the enamels ‘sitting proud’ of the surface-with the central scene of a pair of boldly colored yellow cockerels about to spar beneath a leafy tree, a peony rising from rockwork beside all the action. The border also lavishly decorated with panels of peony and prunus, scrollwork and diapered ground. A great form, fantastically decorated. Measuring 8″ in diameter, in good condition and dating to circa 1735-1745.
