Stylish Nippon Hand Painted 10” Charger, Pastel Peonies, Intricate Gold Filigree and Beading, early 1900s

This exceptional porcelain charger is one of those truly beautiful Nippon items which, although not flashy, has exquisite artistry and workmanship. It's worth thinking about the technical expertise and time-consuming labor involved in this special example - hand applying 700-800 tiny gold beads around the edges of this plate with a single-hair camel brush. Then there is the gentle, subtle hand painting of the flowers - so many shades and overlapping blossoms with underlying `shadow' petals and leaves. And, finally, the intricate and elegant black `slip' squares and flowers, which are all connected with very fine gold tracery vines and leaves to create a gorgeous border. I especially love the tan, olive and sable brown shading used in the background beneath the hand-painted ice-pink, lemon yellow, and plum peonies. A wonderful addition to your home!

This 10" charger is in excellent condition with no flaws or blemishes that I can see. It has the much favored Van Patten's Mark #52 (maple leaf). Please stop by again when you're traveling down Ruby Lane!
