Guest Book
A Chinese export deep well plate decorated with blossoms and flowering sprigs in underglaze blue against white porcelain. Blue bands around the center, the top edge of the well and the rim. The outside rim is brown. The underside has no marks, a dry foot and a couple of loosely painted sprigs. 9 inch (22.5 cm) diameter.

Condition: No chips cracks, hairlines or repairs. Hardly used. Some minor firing flaws.

This type of decoration is typical of the early 18th century and very much the oriental taste that dominated the earlier export. While it is called blue and white, the white is slightly muted. The blues are strong.
