Beautiful Chinese porcelain plate painted in raised enamels in a famille rose palette, mostly green and pink, with a detailed border of butterflies, birds and flowers. It has a center reserve decorated with a composition of jardinières, a sword, and various elements charged with symbolism. Butterflies are associated with a wish for longevity and happiness in marriage. The Peony is considered the king of flowers and is associated with wealth and honor. It Taoism, the sword represents a force against evil. An unusual piece, we have never seen another one like it. Unmarked on the celadon green underside as older pieces often are. Unglazed, rough foot rim also typical of earlier pieces. In good used condition with gilt wear, hairlines and restoration as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 9 1/2" diameter approximately.
