Delft Blue and White Charger with Chinoiserie Decoration Made 18th Century

About

We are pleased to offer this 18th century Dutch delft blue and white charger. The pattern is a Dutch tribute to the best of 17th century Chinese design. The workman, circa 1740, painted the charger with lavish cobalt blue decoration. In the center we see a Chinese peasant walking past a stately home. The tool he carries is the Dutch painter's interpretation of the traditional Chinese nine pointed hoe, used in farming. The hat he is wearing is typical for peasant men in ancient China. Around him is lively decoration in a wide border with panels depicting a Chinese figure alternating with panels showing foliate scrolls. The underside of the rim is decorated with X-O and dash motifs (see images 8 and 9). The charger has many decorative elements that insure a fresh appreciation every time you look at it. Condition of the charger is excellent. Dimensions: diameter 13.25" Price: $1600 Background of Dutch delft in the chinoiserie style: In the beginning of the 17th century two Portuguese merchant boats returning from China were captured by Dutch warships. The Chinese blue and white porcelains in their cargoes, known as Kraak porcelain, with emphasis on paneled decoration in wide borders. These blue and white porcelains sold well in the Dutch market. This was the start of the Dutch people's long lasting love for Chinese ceramics. Later in the mid-17th century, civil wars in China sharply curtailed the production and export of Chinese porcelains. Dutch entrepreneurs jumped to fill the popular demand for blue and white wares. They created chinoiserie decorated delft which quickly became very popular.
