Chinese blue and white porcelain meat dish showing porcelain manufacture at Jingdezehn


Qianlong period circa 1770-80
English Market
Length: 14¾ inches; 38cm

A very rare Chinese porcelain meatdish of octagonal shape, painted in underglaze blue with scenes of the manufacture of porcelain, the rim with a border of reserves on a cell diaper.

Images of the manufacture of porcelain actually drawn on porcelain are relatively rare and this is a fine example.

References: Cohen & Cohen 2006, p54, No 33, a blue and white punchbowl with a very similar scene as here on one side.
