    A good quality and attractive Chinese plate, decorated in underglaze blue, and dating to the Kangxi period. The centre of the plate has been decorated with 8 horses gambolling in a filed beneath a willow tree and with two birds flying beneath the tree. The rim of the plate is decorated with plants emerging from decorative rockwork. The back of the plate is decorated with two twiggy branches at the rim, and with a ding mark within double circles on the base. Diameter 22.1 cm (8.7")

     
    The charming scene with the horses represents the Eight Horse of Mu Wang. Mu Wang reigned during the Zhou dynasty in the 10th Century BCE, and the Eight Horses were his favourite chargers which pulled the Emperor's chariot as he progressed about his realm to visit the Goddess Hsi Wang Mu.
     
    Dating: Kangxi c 1690 - 1710
     
    Condition:
     
    This plate has a small rim chip, and a hairline extending 5cm from the rim. The foot rim has a number of small chips. Despite these imperfections (which could be restored) this is an attractive plate which displays well.
