Late Qing Dynasty
Porcelain with overglaze famille verte enamels
Diameter: 36.5 cm / 14.4 in
From a San Diego, CA estate
A large and impressive porcelain charger plate, made in the late Qing dynasty and bearing an iron-red Qianlong seal mark. Enameled in the famille verte palette, this piece is decorated with two sprawling dragons, bordered by a diaper-ground border divided by chrysanthemums. The most interesting feature is however the subtle but impressive background, which is entirely covered with white enamel and sgrafitto decorated with crashing waves.
