  • Six Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Dishes Kangxi Era Made c-1700


    These six beautiful Chinese blue and white porcelain dishes were painted in the Kangxi era circa 1700. Hand-painted using both soft and dark cobalt blue, each dish is very slightly different from the others in the set. The decoration is exquisite. At the center of each dish, there are two flowering peonies emanating from rockwork. On the border surrounding the peonies are other flowers including chrysanthemums, and plum blossoms. These dishes have meaning in Chinese tradition. Peonies are much loved for their bold size and colors. They are known as the flower of “riches and honor.”* Chrysanthemums symbolize abundance, while plum blossoms symbolize endurance and hope*. The dishes are molded, and the border of each plate is fluted in a pattern similar to the petals on a flower. The total effect is delightful.

    Dimensions: 8″ in diameter x 1” in height

    Condition: Excellent with minor frits on the foot of each dish

  • Set of Six Large Blue and White Delft Chargers Hand-Painted 18th-Century


    This group makes a true blue statement. The deep cobalt blue is fabulous!  This set of six Dutch Delft chargers are hand-painted in the “Theeboom” pattern showing a tea plant with a fan-shaped bouquet of leaves and flowers. This is one of the most exquisite hand-painted designs made on Delft chargers in the 18th century, which explains why it was so popular. The pattern is lush and full of color. The deep blue decoration fills the charger. On the border are floral decorations and scroll designs. The white edges are delicately scalloped, adding another beautiful dimension to each charger. The chargers have the mark of De Klaauw “The Claw” for Delft made in the last quarter of the 18th century, or for LPK for De Porceleyne Lampetkan 1778-1811.     For an image and discussion of a group of Delft chargers with this pattern, see E B Schapp, Delft Ceramics at the Philadelphia Museum of Art pages 74 and 75.
