A well decorated Chinese Imari export plate with underglaze blue and overglaze red, orange and gold. The scene of flowering plants and a Chinese fence covers the face of the plate, from the rim on one side, across the center and onto the opposite rim. There is a single blue line at the outer border and a brown edge. The back is decorated with blue and red trailing flowers and has an unglazed foot. Probably the first quarter of the 18th century. 8 5/8 inch (22 cm) diameter.

Condition; No cracks, hairlines or repairs. There is one small rim chip that does not extend inward beyond the blue line. There is a firing flaw at the center of the plate that is hardly noticeable and there are dark spots here and there. Minor wear.

A good example of the Imari style that the Chinese imitated for sale to the Western market.
