A good quality Chinese export plate with moulded rim, decorated in underglaze blue, and dating from the Yongzheng period. The centre of the dish is decorated with a European scene of figures in a landscape, and the rim has a distinctive wave pattern in two different tones of underglaze blue. The back of the plate is decorated with three flowering sprays. Diameter 22.1cm (8.7")
This plate is from the Ca Mau shipwreck, dated to 1723-1735. Similar plates can be seen illustrated in plates 27 to 30 in the book 'Tau co Ca Mau; the Ca Mau Shipwreck' by Nguyen Dinh Chien. The traditional name 'Deshima island' given to this decoration in the West is thought to be the result of Japanese copies of this pattern being made around 1700 and imported into Europe. It is now believed that the origin of the decoration is older, and is a design found on C17th Dutch delftware.
This plate is from our personal reference collection of Chinese Eighteenth Century plates. Label for R & G McPherson Antiques.
