Underglaze Painted Chinese Porcelain Plate

(1785 - 1800)

Part of a Chinese Export porcelain plate consisting of seven base, body and rim sherds with a sloppy blue underglaze painted decoration. The footring is unglazed and undercut. There is a painted Pavilion landscape motif on the face of the plate with trees and partial tea house visible. Encircling the central motif is a blue trellis diaper pattern. The rim has a floral, geometric and fish roe diaper pattern. The plate is most likely octagonal with a very subtly trimmed rim. Consists of six mended sherds and one sherd that mends but is not mended/glued.
