Eighteenth Century Dutch Decorated Chinese Export Plate An Hua Polychrome - circa 1750, ChinaEighteenth Century Dutch Decorated Chinese Export Plate An Hua Polychrome - circa 1750, China

Charming mid eighteenth century Chinese plate decorated circa 1750 in Holland with an European / western subject decor. The Chinese porcelain plate was originally decorated with a carved, overall An Hua (also known as secret or veiled decoration) incised pattern and blue under the glaze narrow diaper border on a greenish / grey celadon ground. The Dutch decoration painted over the glaze depicts a family group consisting of an elegantly dressed couple and child outdoors, in a garden, surrounded by scrolls and a wide floral border. The rendering is most charming, with naive, oddly proportioned figures in a polychrome palette where iron red predominates combined with green, blue, yellow, lilac and black. We have seen similar decoration describe as East India Company in western decor and the couple depicted as a Dutch husband, possibly Governor Duff or a prosperous Dutch merchant, and wife. In very good used condition with paint wear and minor rim frit retouch as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 9" (23 cm) diameter approximately.
