Yongzheng Saucer in the Chinese Taste #7662c sold
Another very fine Chinese Yongzheng period saucer from our collection decorated in rich Famille Rose enamels and gilding in the Chinese taste with a remarkably detailed scene of a courtly lady lavishly attired playing a stringed instrument with a small boy nearby bearing a ruyi scepter all within a minutely detailed gilded diapered cavetto, the rim edged with pink enamel cell work with floral reserves, all supported on an eggshell thin body. The same artistry and attention to detail was spent decorating this 4 1/2″ saucer as would been taken on the production of a large plate or charger, such is the quality of this period’s porcelain. Very good condition. Circa 1735.
