BUYERS ARE WATCHING THIS ITEM. I WILL UPDATE AS THE NUMBER RISES OR FALLS, THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST. Rare 17-18th C Blue & White Chinese Kangxi Porcelain Plate 8.875 (22.2cm). The plate measures: 8 7/8" (22.2cm) by 1" (2.5cm) Weighs 13 oz. The square mark on the underside is a stylistic mark for the Kangxi period.
Looking great for 300 years old! The mark is enclosed in two circles, which is typical of Chinese period pieces, and the irregularity of the circles is also typical. The foot and floral decoration are also correct for the period.
Several of the close-up photos show the under-glaze bubbles found in period pieces. Lastly, you can see iron deposits which are commonly found in period pieces of this age, see mark in photo #12. The plate is in remarkable condition for its age.There are no cracks or hairlines or repairs or restorations. A beautiful addition to any fine Chinese porcelain collection. This plate has very typical Kangxi detail for an export period plate with a prized young boy theme. The color of the potting is very light blue, which in some photos, depending on your monitor, shows up white because of lighting effects. Note: The front and back images show the colors best I believe. REGARDING ITEM DESCRIPTIONS: PLEASE READ. IF FOR ANY REASON AN ITEM IS DELIVERED BROKEN, OR BECOMES LOST. I WILL FILE A CLAIM ON YOUR BEHALF. IF THE ITEM ARRIVES BROKEN.
