Chinese round plate, b-w decor fisherman, Kangxi.
Ø 23 cm H 3 cm
The blue and white Chinese porcelain from the Qing dynasty, starting from 1644, shows no flaws anymore. There are no black dots, no bleeding or dull blue caused by baking at too high or too low a temperature, no obscuring of the blue in the coating. The motifs are painted very cleanly, every brushstroke is sharp so that every detail is clearly visible under the transparent almost colorless cover. There is an impression of perspective and the porcelain painting matches the literati paintings on scrolls. Shown is a beautiful Chinese porcelain round plate. It has an underglaze blue and white decor that is hand painted in cobalt blue under a milky white glaze. We see a fisherman with a fishing basket who is sitting in peace, with crossed legs, on a rocky outcrop and under a weeping willow, this on a lake. A bird flies in the sky. There are two ducks in the water. In the foreground some rocks. The shelf is bordered by two circular lines. The transition shows four lotus plants and is bordered by one circular line. The border remains largely unpainted and on the edge is a narrow frieze of a diaper pattern. The lip is painted brown. The back is, except for the foot ring, white glazed. The sign is not marked. It dates back to the Qing Dynasty, Kangxi Imperial Period, ca. 1700.
Condition: on the back there are some small chips on the edge; some point-shaped firing flaws; overall in good condition.
