    #1 (the charger higher up in the first image):
    This large Chinese Imari porcelain charger dates to the Qianlong period of the Qing dynasty, circa 1760. Finely potted with a lovely rich, glassy white glaze, the charger is hand-painted in a vivid Imari palette of orange-red, cobalt blue, and gold. We see chrysanthemums, lotus, and peony flowers in full bloom. The exquisite orange-red decoration is detailed and outlined in gold, which gives the design a luxurious look. On the underside, we see the artemisia leaf mark painted in underglaze blue within a traditional double ring. Typical of Chinese Imari ware in this period, the charger’s underside also bears a traditional sketch of two branches of plum blossoms.

  • Extra Large Chinese Punch Bowl Hand Painted Qianlong Period circa 1760

    $9,700.00

    An altogether fabulous bowl! The hand-painted Famille Rose decoration is exquisite and vibrant. We see lifelike carp beautifully painted in pink and orange swimming among stylized lotus inside the bowl. In Chinese tradition, fish swimming among lotus is a wish for continued success, and they inspire me. They are so well painted that we can almost feel them move around in the bowl. They look or swim upward, symbolizing the owner’s success in upward movement in society. Above the fish, the border on the rim shows clouds on turquoise ground and waterlilies with waves on iron-red ground. Painted on the outside of the bowl are superb pink and white peonies and beautiful clusters of plum tree flowers painted in cheerful pale yellow and pink. The colors are heightened by the green leaves that surround them. Truly magnificent.

    This beautiful mid 19th-century Chinese plate was hand-painted in the Famille Rose style in the  Qing dynasty, circa 1860. The plate depicts two Mandarin ducks swimming on a lotus pond. They look at each other and seem to smile. This is a happy plate with a symbolic message. Mandarin ducks are thought to mate for life. Therefore, in Chinese lore, they represent a happy marriage.

We see pink shading into lavender pink and blue shading into light blue and turquoise. Highlights of grey, yellow, green, and light brown with gilt are framed by waveforms in bright white.
