A beautiful and very large 18th century Chinese Export blue and white meat platter / plate.
It has some lovely delicate decoration with an elaborate floral border that reaches out to the edge and a pretty centre design with a tropical bird and a butterfly, the pattern is a little less garish than many pieces of blue and white.
Painted in underglazed blue with a slightly scalloped edge on a thick, heavy and substantial glazed earthenware base, unmarked.
A lovely rustic feel and in relatively good condition for the age, some natural crackling of the glaze but in my opinion this adds to the feel, it has a small chip top left (see photos) and a hairline crack on top side in a similar area.
It has some age related darkened spots on the white background but nothing that detracts.
A fantastic rustic piece to add to your country kitchen or dining room, the possibilities are endless.
Any questions or queries please contact us.
It is large and heavy so will arrive in a larger parcel.
