Hand potted Chinese porcelain export plates with delicate hand painted designs. Though the plates were for the western market, the Chinese still incorporated Chinese design sense and artifacts.

There is a shallow foot ring that is unglazed. The base is glazed. There is no decoration on the underside of the plates.

Each plate was hand thrown, and hand painted in over glaze enamels. You can see the potter’s wheel marks on the base under the glaze. The body glaze is thin with an off-white coloring. The designs were painted in an iron wash with accents in gilt and black.
