A fine Chinese export plate decorated with a central roundel of a white Hare beneath a flowering Peach tree in a landscape, probably intened as a reference to the Daoist paradise; both are symbols of longevity. The border decorated with a representative selection of the eight Buddhist emblems the canopy, kai, and what appears to be an hexagonal vase, ping, and another baluster vase both caparisoned with a canopy and trailing ribbons with Lotus. Interspersed between each motif are flowers representing the Seasons Hydrangea, Peony and Chrysanthemum. The rim glazed with an iron brown dressing, and the reverse painted with under-glaze blue sprigs. Dating late Kangxi circa 1700-20. The plate is in very good condition with no cracks or chips to the rim just some trivial chips to the unglazed foot ring. It measures 22cm in diameter. Shipping at Cost
