Chinese early 18th century blue and white plate made during the reign of the Emperor Kangxi at the kilns at Jingdezhen. Excellent colour and painting.
The painting to the font shows a writhing four toed dragon with the flaming pearl, the source of all wisdom, amongst lightning bolts and clouds all inside a double circle.
The rim or cavetto is painted with a turbulent foaming sea with flower heads and demi heads.
The underside is painted with Buddhist emblems underneath the rim and to the base a double circle around a six character apocryphal Cheng H'ua mark. A mark to honour not to deceive.
Excellent small plate made for export to Europe
Overall very good. Small frit to the side
