Item Description

This lovely mark and period Qianlong plate dates to the 18th century and is in very good condition. The pink enamel is decorated with a red floral motif. The enamel has a slight orange peel texture. The exterior is decorated in orange with bamboo leaves. The Qianlong mark is in underglaze blue. The edges have a protective Batanik glaze around the rim that is not seen on all pieces from the period. It has likely helped to preserve the dish from excessive chips and other damage.

The plate is in very good condition for age. But there is some wear, 2 small chips, and iron spots. All are in line with the age. 

The plate measures approximately 7.5 inches. It has been photographed in varying degrees of light to highlight details. The weight listed includes packaging for safe shipment.
