Chinese porcelain blue and white plate copying a delft pattern
Kangxi period circa 1720
Diameter 8¾ inches; 22cm
An unusual Chinese export porcelain dinner plate decorated in an underglaze deep cobalt blue with designs of vases of flowers.
This interesting design copies the style of Dutch delft dishes and plates of this period, possibly directly from a ceramic example taken to Canton and transported to Jingdezhen.
