Qing Dynasty Blue and White Dish with Kraak Style Design


A blue and white plate, fired during the Qing dynasty in the late 19th century, showcases the use of cobalt colour pigment. Its distinctive shallow hat-shaped design is adorned with a Kraak-style (Fuyo-de) motif featuring flowers and insects. This plate is believed to have been created for export to the West, characterized by its unique and somewhat rigid painting style. Despite its delicate appearance, its remarkable sturdiness makes it well-suited for practical use.

There are some kiln grits on the front face, and a line on the back resembles a hairline but does not extend through to the front. Apart from these minor imperfections, the plate is in very good condition, free from any significant defects.
