Iconic Chinese Export "Deshima Island" plate dating to the Yongzheng period. The view on this well-known blue and white pattern has long been called Deshima Island (near Nagasaki), the V.O.C. headquarters in Japan from 1641-1862, but more likley depicts the Dutch coastal town Scheveningen. For another example in the Hodroff Collection in the Winterthur Museum, see Howard, The Choice of the Private Trader, p. 44, no. 11. Of several versions, the Chinese is perhaps the latest. In Jenyns' opinion, it is based on earlier Arita examles. About 7.87" (20cm) x 1.02" (2.6cm). Perfect save frits to the rim (see our photos). Please note: Our price includes shipping from Germany.
