More information

Shown is a fine medium-sized contoured plate with hand-painted blue and white chinoiserie decor. On a milky white tin glaze, in the center of the shelf, delineated by two concentric lines, a bird of paradise is painted, sitting on a rock and surrounded by stylized flowers and a floating insect. Around it we see a frieze of alternating ferns and plants. The outer part of the shelf is bordered by a thick dark blue wavy line. Various panels with alternating plants and flowers have been painted on the steep transition and border, separated by obliquely curly lines. On the edge we see a wavy frieze of geometric motifs. The border itself is left white. Afterwards, the front of the plate was polished, that is to say covered with a shiny transparent lead glaze. The back is also tin glazed, with the exception of the base ring. Six four-pointed motifs in bold underglaze cobalt appear on the rim. We also see the typical remains of proene on the edge. In the center, the manufacturer’s mark “in the claw” is brushed in cobalt underglaze. The letters “L.S” stand for Lambertus Sanderus. The latter was director from 1763 to 1806. Below it we see the numbers “50”. The sign dates from about 1770
