Chinese Famille Verte Porcelain Plate

Kangxi period, AD 1662-1722


Decorated with a scene of figures in a mountain pass.  All finely painted in bright famille verte enamels. The mountain scene is a classic decoration likely based upon a scene from a famed classic tale or painting.  The decorative style of this plate represents Chinese taste placed upon a more Western style plate presumably made for export to Europe.  In the earlier stages of the Kangxi period- such combinations are encountered as the trade and decorative tastes between East and West were developing.
Diameter: 14 ½ inches (36.8 cm.)
Ex: Private European Collection
