    chinese polychrome famille verte dish, kangxi or yongzheng

    A Chinese dish, attractively decorated with polychrome overglaze green, yellow and iron red enamels in a simplified famille verte style and dating from the early Eighteenth Century. The dish has been decorated with a central roundel with a lotus flower surrounded by lotus scrolls, and around the rim with 6 shaped panels with a variety of flowers. The back of the dish has two iron-red flower sprays around the rim. Diameter 22cm (8.6”)

    It is amusing to notice that the central iron red circle was obviously drawn first, and has been placed slightly off-centre, and the decorator of the dish has had to adapt the decoration to fit by making some of the panels slightly larger.
    Dating: Kangxi or Yongzheng
    This dish is in very good condition, with a small chip to the foot rim, and a small firing flaw in the base (which does not pass through the base, and is not visible from the front. There is a short consolidated hairline from the rim which is virtually invisible to the naked eye. There is some surface wear to the enamels, which are otherwise in good condition. Please see the images. No crack or restoration.
