An exceptional fine famille verte charger, Qing dynasty, Kangxi period (1662-1722)

finement peint d'une scène de palais figurant l'Empereur et l'Impératrice entourés de leur suite, assistant à un spectacle de danse et de musique dans un décor fastueux, le pourtour extérieur peint de quatre grues en vol au-dessus de vagues et rochers saillants, marque zhi en bleu sous couverte à la base.

Provenance: Acquired in France by the family of the present owner in the 19th century. 
In the family by descent.

NoteSeveral dishes of this exceptionally large size finely painted in Famille Verte colours with variations of banquet scenes are known. Compare two dishes of the same size and quality, sold at Sotheby's London, 19th June 2002, lots 127 and 128, the latter formerly in the Ionides Collection, London. Another dish belonging to this group was sold at Christie's London, 13th November 2001, lot 224.

The base on this dish is inscribed with and underglaze blue zhi mark. This mark, like the apocryphal Chenghua marks of the period, has been linked to porcelains made for Imperial use. There are several variations of the mark. For examples see "The Complete Collection of Treasures in the Palace Museum, Miscellaneous Enamelled Porcelains and Plain Tricoloured Porcelains", Shanghai, 2009, cat. nos. 219, 220 and 223. For blue and white examples and wucai wares, compare Kangxi Porcelain Wares from the Shanghai Museum Collection, Hong Kong, 1998, nos. 50, 115-118.
