Set of Eight Very Nice 18th Century Chinese Export Plates

4,000.00

A set of eight late-18th C. Chinese export porcelain luncheon plates , circa 1780 – 1800, late Qianlong /early Jiaqing, each with a shallow ogee-bracket rim, richly enameled in famille rose colors in the European taste, with scattered flowers centered by a main bouquet of fantasy flowers tied with a bowknot & ribbon, surrounded by a border with four way radial symmetry, comprising four reserves with florals en suite framed in a scrolling rococo style cartouche in gold enamel, joined by reserves of purple lattice diaper in a similar scroll-bordered cartouche on a ground of pink dragon-scale.

This is a gorgeous set of classic late-18th C. Chinese export porcelain designed for the European market, particularly Paris & London, in a rococo-style that is almost better known in its revived and re-worked form, as per Edme Samson, the notorious 19th C. Paris maker of reproduction porcelain. It also inspired numerous Staffordshire factories throughout the 19th century such as Minton, Myott, Ridgway and so on, to make their own variants.
