GALERIE NICOLAS FOURNERY

A Chinese blue and white dish with a mongolian hunting scene. Kangxi period.

The plate is decorated in underglazed blue and white, with an iconic Kangxi image : two Mongolian horsemen in a rocky landscape, armed with bow spear, pursuing a deer, and accompanied by hound hunting. The rim is painted with a large band of scrolling lotus around the scalloped edge with Buddhist auspicious emblems like the pair of fishes, the endless knot, the conch-shell, the state umbrella, the covered vase or the lotus flower. The reverse is painted with a double circle around the lotus flower encircled by single flowers on stems.
