Underglaze Painted Chinese Porcelain Dish

(Mid-Eighteenth Century)

Approximately a third of a large Mid-Eighteenth-Century Chinese-export porcelain saucer dish with a sloppy blue underglaze painted decoration. The dish has an unglazed, yellowed footring. The motif on the face is a pavilion landscape with willow trees and a bird in flight. The central motif is encircled by a floral pattern with two sets of lines on either side. The rim has a geometric floral pattern with diaper and scroll design. The dish is most likely a molded octagonal due to rim shape. The rim measures to approximately 10 inches in diameter.
