Chinese Kangxi Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Swastika Mark
This attractive porcelain dish was made during the Kangxi reign (1622 - 1722) of the Qing Dynasty. It is quite "heavily-potted" and has a moulded cavetto and foliate rim. The underglaze blue decoration is of very good colour and features in the centre a basket of flowers surrounded by various floral and blossom patterns. The underside is more simply decorated and has a beribboned Buddhist swastika design in the centre of the base.
Diameter 21.5 cm (8.5 inches). There is minor "fritting" to the glaze at the rim edge and a piece of kiln grit embedded within the glaze, both of these, of course, a result of manufacture. There is also a small rim chip and a short and very fine hairline at the rim that is very difficult to see unless the dish is held in bright light at a certain angle (see magnified image). There is no repair or restoration and the dish has a good ring when tapped.
