Underglaze Blue and Red 18th C Chinese Fish Plate
This Underglaze Blue and Red 18th C Chinese Fish Plate has a classic motif used to decorate Chinese ceramics. The carp is an auspicious symbol in the culture, representing many values such as strength and power. The colors on this specific plate are almost perfect, with the deep cobalt blue and the vivid red underglaze.
The base is unglazed and undamaged. There are no chips or hairlines, only firing flaws and signs of age on the plate. There is also a small area of old adhesive on the front of the plate.
The weight shown gives consideration to the extra padding necessary for safe shipping. It has an approximate 10.5 inch diameter. The plate has a protective metal wall hanger attached.
