A square porcelain tile with polychrome enamels with designs of precious and scholars’ objects, including books, flower vases, an incense burner, and a bowl of fruit. The main design is surrounded by a green four-point border with flowers in each corner. The designs use muted colors commonly used on Kangxi porcelains.

The tile is heavy and has an orange peel texture to the surface. Four squares of cork were added to the bottom to make it a trivet.

Although the tile is painted with a color palette commonly used during the Kangxi period (late 16th/early 17th C), we believe tile is from the 19th Century. Our assessment is supported by the use of a orange peel texture that was common at that time.

MEASUREMENTS

9” (22.9 cm) x 9” (22.9 cm) x ¼” (.64 cm) thick. Weighs 2 lb 1.4 oz (945 g)

CONDITION

There are no cracks, or breaks. There is some wear to the enamels especially on the flower in the upper right corner. There is a chip on an edge on the underside. The two side edges are rough from being taken off a building or screen. There are wear scratches on the surface. It’s definitely old.

A large tile that will look great on a stand or framed as a plaque on the wall.
