This is the largest Chinese Export Antique 18th c. CANTON DEEP PLATTER I have seen! RARE is the word! IF one is found, it usually has chips or cracks.
18 1/2 plus" x 15 plus" in excellent condition.
The Canton platter has coastal village scene, tea house, arched bridge, willow trees, meandering streams, distant mountains and absence of figures. The border is blue lattice network with inner border of wavy lines/clouds.
The skill of the painter is evident but hard to capture in the pictures. Use to serve off of or for display.
This is a large show stopper platter!
