REF No. 6285
chinese export porcelain blue and white massive charger
Yongzheng period circa 1725
Diameter: 24 inches; 60cm
A massive charger in underglaze blue with a central river landscape with a pagoda, a bridge and two mandarin ducks, the cavetto with a trellis diaper and floral reserves, the rim with cafe-au-lait outer edge.
This is one of the largest such chargers recorded and is at the physical limits for this type - any larger and it would warp or collapse in the kiln. It is finely painted and in excellent condition.
