REF No. 6719 GG
GG: Pair of Chinese Armorial porcelain large Chargers, arms of van Overveldt
Kangxi period circa 1710-20
Diameter: 20¼ inches; 51.5cm
from the Golden Gate Collection
A pair of large Chinese export porcelain chargers painted in the Chinese Imari palette of underglaze blue and overglaze iron red and gold, with a central coat of arms and an inscription above ‘PAMEN’.
The arms have traditionally been attributed to the Dutch family of van Overveldt, though Kroes 2007 indicates that a number of other families have similar arms with a hare. He suggests that the likely commisioners were three van Overveldt bothers Nicolaas (1691-1717), Dirk Adrianus (1692-after1723) and Jacobus (1694-1737) all based in The Hague. Only large chargers and plates are known and the meaning of the motto is not clear.
