$2,700.00

Why we love it: Look at the image! This pair of beautiful Chinese Imari porcelain dishes dates to the Qianlong period of the Qing dynasty, circa 1760. The dishes have a soft palette of red, cobalt blue, and gold. We see chrysanthemum and peony flowers in the central panel. The wide rim of the dish is adorned with additional flowers. Typical of the Chinese Imari ware at that time, the back of the charger bears a sketch of flowers on the vine.

Background of Chinese Imari porcelains

In the late 17th century, Japanese potters in Arita first made export porcelains with elaborate gilt designs to cater to European consumers. As the wares were shipped abroad from the port of Imari, this category of brilliantly enameled porcelain was conventionally known as “Imari ware.” From the early 18th century, Chinese artisans followed the Japanese example and manufactured similar Imari-style porcelain products identified by connoisseurs as “Chinese Imari ware.” Our refined charger is an excellent example of mature Chinese Imari Porcelain for the West.
