Rare 18th century pair of deep plates of the Famille Rose with beautiful decoration with peacock and peahen (the 2 peacocks service) among peonies within a spear-head fleur-de-lys border to the cavetto, all in a blue, pink, yellow, gilt, green and grey/brown palet of colours. The wide rim with garlands of flowers enclosed by a geometric patterned border, interspersed by cartouches containing scrolls. Gilt edge. The chinaware is, let us say, a mix of the "Famille Verte" and the "Famille Rose". It has large roses painted showing up, which forces the classification as "Famille Rose", but the decoration in general is characteristic of the "Famille Verte" as well as the greenish glazing. The dishes seem to be of the 2 Peacocks Chinese service but marks are Japanese (Dai Ni Pon), apparently from Hizen (Hezen)and are a Japanese copy of the period, though quality make is even more delicate than the original Chinese model, and they are even more interesting than the original Chinese pieces of which there are about 5,000 left. Red marks enamalled over the glazing. Artist/maker unidentified.
Period: 2d half of the 18th century corresponding with the Chinese Qianlong reign.
Conditions: Wear consistent with age and use. The two plates have a significant hairline crossing partially one of them and from edge to edge on the other. However, none of them seem to be restored.
