A Very Fine Kangxi (1662-1722) Mark and Period Dish
From our Chinese Blue and White Collection, a very fine Kangxi (1662-1722) Mark and Period porcelain dish depicting two elegant ladies in a garden setting containing scholar’s rocks and banana leaf plants; one lady holds a fan while the other holds her hands clasped together. Cross-hatched motifs decorate the border along with four vignettes of peaches signifying longevity. The reverse is decorated with what appears to be a stylized “clouds and mountains” design on the outer rim, with the six character Kangxi mark of the period contained within double circles in the center. There are three different tonalities to the cobalt blue, and the interior scene is crisply painted with the ladies looking quite refined.

Size and Condition: 8 1/8 inches in diameter, 1 1/8 inches deep. There are two very small nicks to the rim: the first is at the one o’clock position, the second is at the seven o’clock position.
