This is a very beautifully hand painted Chinese Imari porcelain very large Dish or Plate / Platter from the Qing, Kangxi period, 1662-1722, dating to Circa 1710.
Very large diameter ( 14.7 inches or 37.3cm) Kangxi period Plates or Chargers are hard to find!
The Chinese Export plate is well potted with a carefully cut base rim and a lovely rich glassy white glaze, with a very light blue tinge.
The Dish is finely hand painted with a floral decoration of various flowers, including peonies and chrysanthemums. In red and gold overglazes and blue underglazes. The outside rim is decorated with flower branches. The bottom is marked with a Fungus (Che) mark surrounded by two blue circles.
A very similar Kangxi period, Imari decorated charger plate, with the same base mark, is illustrated on Page 298, colour plate N0. 625, in the book Chinese Ceramics by He Li, published by Thames & Hudson.
Overall, a very beautiful, finely hand painted, very large Dish / Plate, made in the Kangxi period when Chinese porcelain was at its zenith.
