Produced in the Kangxi period (1661-1722), this fine plate was intended for the export market and painted in the fashionable Japanese style. Jingdezhen's monopoly on porcelain production was broken in 1616 when Japanese potters at Arita figured out how to produce their own porcelain wares. These were exported to the outside world from the port at Imari, and their dramatic combination of underglaze blue with overglaze red and gold proved an enormous success...

As with all dzi beads, the dark brown area of the stone may have been darkened in a process that involved it being coated with a solution of natural sugar and then baked. ‘Lukmik’ means goat’s eye (which is...
