Six Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Dishes Kangxi Era Made c-1700$5,800.00
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
