Chinese Porcelain Hand Painted 8 ½” Plate – Circa: Early – Mid 20th Century

This is a lovely, vintage Chinese porcelain plate decorated with colorful musicians in thoughtful performance seated in the tranquility and beauty of a garden. These three fellows and their youthful audience are richly painted under glaze with red, green yellow and blue with a fanciful cloud and sun design around the rim against a gold background. The plate is back stamped with blue under glaze in a signature design very similar to those seen on early to mid 20th century pieces.

This charming plate is 8 ½ inches in diameter and in very good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs save some loss of the design particularly around the faces and only the expected glaze pops occurring from the firing process during manufacture. This in no way compromises the quality or presentation of the piece.

It is important to note that this charming vintage Chinese porcelain plate came from the private collection of the internationally renowned collector Dorothy-Lee Jones, creator and driving force behind the Jones Museum of Glass & Ceramics in Sebago, Maine. This non-profit, publically supported museum was unique for many reasons including its focus on teaching about all aspects of glass making and history in addition to its eclectic and internationally known collection. The museum had strong ties to such organizations as the Smithsonian, Corning Museum of Glass, Philadelphia Art Museum and several others. Sadly the museum, established in 1978, filed for bankruptcy in 2005.

In addition to 8 ½ inches in diameter, this wonderful plate weighs 13.2 ounces, is 1 inch tall and was most likely used for pudding or bread and butter. Although listed separately we currently have three of these wonderful plates available as shown in our last series of pictures.

Thank you for your interest in this fabulous vintage Chinese porcelain plate and please feel free to browse our Ruby Lane exclusive shop, Little River Antiques & Collectibles, for other unique and exciting treasures including many other fine pieces of porcelain.
