Plate, circa 1755-60

Octagonal plate, the decoration after an oriental original (possibly from the region now modern Bhutan), with four robed ladies walking through a stylized landscape, the first with a Buddhist prayer flag, the third and fourth with what were probably prayer wheels in the original but here rendered the one as a beflaged canopy, and the other with an improbable parasol or ‘kite on a string’; the rim painted with precious objects.

Straw translucency. Imitation Chinese character marks to base. W.7.4in (18.8cm).

Provenance: Taylor Collection; Robyn Robb, London, 2007.

The design would appear to be otherwise unrecorded.

Rim fleabites
