This exquisite matched pair of Quianlong pierced plates are circa 1780. The fine reticulation on the border is outstanding; the blue exceptionally dark and clear.
Qianlong period pierced plates are exceedingly rare. One authority states that out of every thousand standard plates, a single pierced one can be found.
The plates are in pristine condition and are part of a part of an important collection that was assembled by a prominent Nashville collector over 50 years ago, most of the collection having been purchased from leading New England galleries.
