Chinese Porcelain Plate Hollow Blue Rock Peony Bamboo Antique Qianlong c 1750
Chinese porcelain Qianlong period soup bowl with an interesting and very decorative hand painted poly-chrome enamel landscape pattern. The design in the centre of the plate is the hollow blue rock and peony, chrysanthemum and bamboo pattern contained within a scrolling line and ring border. The rim of the plate is decorated with hand painted flowers, leaves and stems with a brown "Batavian" rim.
This antique dish dates to the mid eighteenth century 1745 - 1755 during the reign of the Emperor Qianlong 乾隆 (1736-95) the Qing dynasty 清代.
The soup plate is 9 1/8 inches (23 cm) diameter and is 1 3/8 inches (3.5 cm) high, it weighs 363 grammes unpacked.
It has a little damage: There are a small number of nibbles to the rim and a large piece has been broken and glued back into place on the rim, probably caused by a plate hanger. There are frits to the front of the plate from manufacture and wear signs from stacking .
Despite this minor damage or imperfections it displays well and this is a most attractive item to add to a collection of 18th century hand painted Chinese porcelain.
