Chinese Porcelain Saucer Painted Blue Qianlong Qing Antique c 1780
A lovely example of antique Chinese export porcelain, a saucer decorated with a hand painted landscape pattern in underglaze blue. The pattern is similar to the banana tree but, with an additional rock with a fisherman nearby. It dates to circa 1780, from the reign of the Emperor Qianlong 乾隆 (1736-95) the Qing dynasty 清代.
The saucer is 5 3/8 inches diameter and is 1 1/4 inches high, it weighs 120g unpacked.
It has a little damage: There are three cracks to the rim, despite the damage it displays well and this is a most attractive item to add to a collection.
