Description

Chinese early 18th century porcelain blue and white plate made towards the end of the reign of the Emperor Kangxi for export to Europe with the Dutch East India Company having been made at the kilns at Jingdezhen.
Painted with a border which is unique to this pattern and probably based on a silver pattern. The interior painted with a coastal scene that originally was thought to be of an Island off the coast of Japan at Nagasaki called Deshima where the Dutch East India were based. It has now been re-attributed to the coastal area around the Dutch port of Scheveningen. The painting shows ships moored in the distance and figures, cows and a marshy scene to the foreground. The painting was based on a print by Frederick van Frytom who was a Dutch delft painter.
The pattern seems to have lasted for two decades and this plate with the cloud design would have been towards the end of the Reign of Kangxi.
